Support the Chancellor
I can't vouch for anything else because I haven't looked, but this is wicked cool. Never forget, as Star Wars teaches us, that Palpatine got elected to office, and took "legal" steps every single way towards his goal of total power. Same with Hitler! He was duly elected to every post on his path to power, and used "Emergency Powers" towards the end game.
Hint: It's always "Emergency Powers" that does the trick. Thus, never trust anyone asking for that power.
