[quote:Anonymous Coward 30329219:MV8yMTIxNjQ0XzM1NzkzODA1XzRFOUFEOTcz] The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? While the word [was] in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, [saying], O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling [shall be] with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, [b]until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. [/b]Daniel - Chapter 4 [/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.
