[quote:Anonymous Coward 32530991:MV8yMTIxNjQ0XzM1NzkzNzk1Xzk0MDQyNTA3] Revelation 13:7 and there was given to it to make war with the saints, and to overcome them, and there was given to it authority over every tribe, and tongue, and nation. [/quote]
Basic biblical theology says God is sovereign over nations. However, the Bible is filled with examples of leaders who are condemned and others who are praised. (Think of Saul in 1 Samuel and the other kings in 1 & 2 Kings and 1 & 2 Chronicles). God sent prophets to challenge the bad leaders and to encourage the good ones.
God did not ordain that ineffective leaders should have political power over people (but see below for a possible exception). That's why he sent prophets to rebuke the leaders. So apparently people have freewill (Deut. 30:19), and how they use it depends on their knowledge or ignorance (Deut. 31:11-13).
In a democracy, if people understand the basics, they will vote for good leaders. If they don't understand, bad leaders will emerge.
