Here’s a few ideas;

Investigate and detain domestic insurgents.
Personal security for selected political figures.
Enforce the fairness doctrine.
Settle down. We have as much or more to fear from authoritarian Republicans. Witness the last eight years. If we lose our rights it will be because the courts take them and people don’t care enough to vote the other way, not because of some American Gestapo.
I have not heard of a Republican proposing a civilian security force as powerful as the military.
Allegedly Obama just proposed this.
