    Is America a society that is based on taking idol? I mean, the president in America is a typical example of a person who is there as an idol rather than a sane figure. In my opinion no society should have any single leader/dictator. Americans love single people with much power, and its all about the person, nothing about what the person stands for.

    America seems to love taking idol, most politics is about idol in American, and not politics. Its the same with the political parties, taken as idol rather than actual politics. Its a fight between idolts, flags if you want.

    And yes, last the American flag, the biggest American idol, waved around as if nationalism is good.

    Point is, does America "take idols"?
    It's called demagogery - technically speaking.

    And the founding fathers wrote our basic rules and regulations to encourage demagogery with the idea that if someone pandered to the people they had to jump through hoops *for the people* in order *for the people* to like said individual.

    Yes - it is designed to be a popularity contest of brown nosing and ass kissing ad nauseum and ad populum.

    "thou shalt not bear idol" is religious and regarding God not people. . . . no one's worshipping Obama to that extent (I don't think) so we're good on that.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
