1. Stack the Courts so future judges rule on your behalf. Since they work for you, they will ensure your work is successful.
2. Keep on stuffing the government with your people. The election authority is an important one to staff with your people.
3. Repeat until you are assured you can rule from below if necessary.
And do so with pride. You are traveling a well-trodden road. El Salvador's Funes did it. Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega did it before you, as did Venezuela's Hugo Chavez. Ecuador's Rafael Correa has done it as well, as has Bolivia's Evo Morales. So, if all the cool kids are doing it, shouldn't you be doing it too?
