39. Too Many Already Think That, returnable
The point is to make sure that people know it IS a power grab, and that the victors in this republic do NOT get to grab for absolute power.

People already think this is a 'winner take all' system. We need to make sure people know it isn't true and that attempting to act like is a power grab.
