Ignorance of history (again).

The Legions were not allowed to enter Rome.  Doing so would
bring the nature of the Republic into question and provides 
(the illusion of) military coercion on the populace. 

OTOH, the Legions did enter at times, but do check on its 
historical association with (ahem) "abrupt changes of leadership".
So maybe its not such a horribly bad idea after all?  /S
