Share Your Thoughts: A Reader on God and Presidential Candidates

I was interacting with a reader yesterday on Twitter who stated that he is very skeptical of the claim that God may prefer one presidential candidate over another.  He said that our allegiance is to God alone.  If I understood him correctly, he wasn't sure someone could rightly claim that God would prefer to have someone like Ted Cruz in office versus someone like Hillary Clinton.

What are you thoughts on this?  Do you believe God is indifferent to what candidate gets into office or do you think God clearly would prefer one type of candidate over another?

Please sound off in the comments below!

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad

I think God would prefer a candidate that would bring more people into His Kingdom. The most fertile soil is made with what most would consider waste....

Could it be that God allows a certain person to be a leader as judgement against a nation? I am thinking along the lines of 1 Samuel 8. Or even Pharaoh.
