God said tho thall not take idols, or something of that sorts..
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"?
