In reply to comment: Where in the Bible does it (see in situ)

What message did you hear?

The Christ of the Bible or the worldly version of Christ? Just wondering because there are many views of Christ and I don't know if you're a Christian or if you've read the Bible, since I don't know you.

But as to your question, you may want to look at Exodus, Deuteronomy, Judges, and Romans 13. You should see from the Bible, as the Founders saw, that some government authority is absolutely necessary for civilized society but that it's also the duty of the people to elect the kinds of leaders described here:

Exodus 18:21 But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens.
