The most interesting part of this question is the last: "How do we maintain biblical integrity in government, without violating people's free wills?"
I don't think amy government has ever maintained biblical integrity, because government is always controlled by the self-interest of the governors.
In a democracy, this is tempered by considering the interests of the governed, in order to secure re-election.

God could never become President because he is the King of Kings the perfect and the Prince of peace as his Son Jesus Christ said my Kingdom is not of this World i go to set at the right hand of my Father

I did think of something funny and wanted to share it.
Who would be Vice President? How about Peter? Don't you folks think that the Tribulation is coming upon us and whoever gets in office, they can't stop what's going to happen to this world? Read Matthew 24 PLEASE before you respond.

Christians should be as active in politics, as much as possible. Three letters to a representative will change their vote. Jesus mission was one of establishing His spiritual purpose, on His return He will establish His political input. Only can a person's free will be exercised in government through Christian input. At this time, it's more opinion of the person in office who may or may not allow Christian principals to guide them because Christians aren't contacting them with their opinions.

"My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight." (in John 18:36)
"nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3)
Example wins. Consider how wives can win the disobedient, by means of their "incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. (in 1 Peter 3:4)

Jesus would not lower himself to President.
His kingdom is eternal and there is no democracy.
His bride does not!
That will damn the multitudes when they appear at His judgment seat.
We are commanded to pray for those in leadership without railing out against them.
The end is written and the prophesies cannot be changed by man's vote.
Fighting God in unawares thinking we can alter future events.
He already knew and wrote it down.

Jesus did not come here 2000 years ago to establish His rule ... He came here to sacrifice Himself to pay for our sins.
If He had established His rule then, He would have had no subjects, for EVERYONE would have been banished (to hell?) for being a sinner.

I agree with Donna. Do your part, but remember that this is not our home, and in the big scheme of things, how much of this stuff holds weight in the end?

**Jesus for President**
I would point out that in His human nature, He's a Palestinian Jew, not native born in the USA, and thus according to the Constitution is ineligible for its presidency.

Jesus is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Jesus didn't establish his rule by these means because He said "My Kingdom is NOT of this world." Biblical integrity in government? Do what the word says to do. Pay taxes, forgive your enemies, turn the other cheek, PRAY at all times in the Spirit. Notice the bible doesn't make it mandatory for us to vote. Jesus's Kingdom is not of this world.
