I can't find in the Bible where Paul the Apostle encouraged others to help remove the powerful wicked political leaders that Paul encountered
Here is another really hard one for you to try and figure. What is the difference between the tyrannical and military dictatorship in Paul's day - AND modern Democratic style government??????? (Take your time now)
Romans 13 teaches that GOD providentially provides our style of Government as well as the administration and management provided. That means the American people are more guilty of putting Obama/Democrats and their political provisions than Paul and his compatriots were.
ps. Voting is the methodology you seek.
Alternatively you could always preach to politicians and convert them!!
The reality is that there was and is only two parties (votes) which count towards the running of America.
Another reality is that voting ie participation in the democratic running of your country is addressed in the Bible.....
Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good.
Four years of Obama and the Democrats should have enabled Christians to make a decision in seeking to help to remove him.
Lets hope eight years get the point through sufficiently by the next election. Although ethnicity may prove to be the next election winner too.

Reality today is that liberalism is destroying authority, church, morals, truth and marriage in society. Looking across at the UK and Europe, Liberalism is destroying justice, education and freedom of speech and religion. Underestimating Liberalism would be like ignoring the antichrist.
Mormons didn't get anywhere near as powerful as this since their inception. In fact I would say that the cult of Roman Catholcism has been and still is more dangerous to society.
And that is before we start on Obama's socialist ideologies and their influences upon society.

Aw c'mon you guys it is blatantly obvious that Liberalism is much much more dangerous to society than mormonism. Nobody has ever been really bothered about mormonism. The people with common sense have just left them to get on with their daft weird religious practices and beliefs.
Whereas Liberalism is directly corrupt depraved and dangerous to church and society as we have seen in recent decades.
Part of modern decline both in church and state stems from Liberalism. Look at what the Obama/Democrat party have introduced into society in the last four years, and into government of the nation.
It was a judgment of error to vote this evil influence into government and where so called "evangelicals" voted otherwise they made a disastrous mistake. To perceive mormonism as lethal to society as Liberalism is bad judgment. History proves that.
"Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president this year, received the lowest level of support among evangelicals of any Republican presidential candidate"
So you got Obama instead.
That was really bright??
If you want to know which is the most dangerous Liberalism or mormonism - then look around you.
Liberalism is the most powerful antichrist which has come in to society since the Reformation got rid of the papal antichrist.
Obama+Democrat provides the satanic disease of Liberalism, abortion the national murder of the unborn infant, sodomy which God declares defiles the very land you live upon, and will destroy marriage and family and the insidious influence of socialism bureaucracy which destroys management and leadership in society - all of which kills moral standards.
