We have some military bases here, but who knows what side they would take.
Military people are generally way more right wing.
Most of them are probably like Kugel in real life.
Military have no right or left as civilians understand it. They aren't riot police employed by the city or some shit. They don't engage in handling people but murdering them.
Go employ your military. You're asking them to murder their nation's citizens, the people they are sworn to protect, the people they know, their own families.
The Democrats (because of course them) have run a test on that shit via the pentagon. Estimations are that in the case of civil war about 80% of military would defect or chose against the government immediately. Even if the entire military would just cooperate, they still wouldn't win a war against the population, with the realistic defection rates they would lose the war as soon as they declare it.
You don't need to be right wing to refuse to kill your own people. You also don't need to be hard right exterminator surpreme to just wait for the government to fail to rebuild anew.
Civil war of Washington DC against the people would be lost that same day, unless they fancy getting killed within the hour.
