It's a good question.
Personally, I think it's high time for Christians to stop thinking about our elected politicians as "kings." God delivered us from all that with the Mayflower Compact and the U.S. Constitution. Jesus is our King. There is no royalty in Washington, regardless of what the Kennedy family thinks. They are simply government employees paid for with your tax money, and some of them don't even pay their taxes. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'm a big fan of voting. Voting is extremely important. Don't forget, Hitler did not take Germany by force, he was ELECTED as a member of the National Socialist German Workers' Party. You can see the election results here:
