My opinion, the National Guard is still in Washington D.C. is because "They" (officials) are very fearful of what is eventually going to happen. The people in this country are becoming angrier by the day, and soon we'll get-up, one morning, turn the news on, and see that a coup has started. Don't know if the House Of Representatives or the Senate will be held hostage, but it will be by some group with a well drawn-out plan. This is why we've not seen anything happening to date. Most of the Left will try to flee the country or go into hiding to avoid being captured and charged with treason.
