Tidbit Tuesday - Super Tuesday

"No political party is justified to continue in existence unless it clearly states the principles which it advocates, the platform upon which its candidates stand, and then with integrity, when and if elected, carry out those principles and live up to that platform. Except that be the case, we as Latter-day Saints should not align ourselves to any party, because we do not have the basis upon which we can make an intelligent decision. We must know what they stand for before we can favor them with our vote. I do not ask you, my brethren and sisters, to go to the polls and just vote, important as that is; but that when you vote, you vote intelligently for those principles and those things and those men which will give to you the kind of government you want, the kind of environment that you desire for yourself and for your posterity."

-Henry D. Moyle
General Conference, April Conference 1952


  1. I love this quote, although I have to feels like it is hard to really know or trust what some people believe in.

    I try to get as much information as I can, and then pray and follow what the Spirit prompts me to do. Sometimes, I think that politics can be so frustrating.

  2. I love this! I am all for voting for the person, not the party. There's a lot of hard-to-understand stuff out there, at least for me! And especially dealing with Medicaid and all of the stuff to do with disabilities. Hard, but worth the time to study out in order to make a good choice.
