Seems to me reading and meditating on Deuteronomy 17:14 that called out ones would not desire to be like the other nations. And therefore not participate in setting a king over.
However since knowing the Sovereign King and reading Daniel 2:21 It is He who ultimately chooses. I believe it is political theatre yet shouldn’t we choose to live peaceable lives? And support righteousness or at least not openly support evil? Is that succumbing to a lesser evil? idk.
Would I let the blind, the deaf, the “unenlightened” or evil people choose who will lead this nation or do I abdicate this responsibility?
