2. Put Your Relatives in Congress. The more relatives you have in Congress or even the senate the better. You will have an official speaker in Congress to make you look beautiful and you can have the undue advantage of enacting laws because you have the direct link in congress. That is so clever!;

3. The Generals Knows it All. Put as many retired generals as you can in the cabinet because they will make sure that the military is loyal to you.
