A quote from Hyrum Smiths. He said the following:
“You are to vote for good men, and if you do not do this, it is a sin. Choose the good and refuse the evil. Men of false principles preyed upon us like wolves upon helpless lambs. Let every man use his liberties according to the Constitution. Don’t fear man or devil electioneer with all people, male and female and exhort them to do the thing that is right.
We want a President of the U.S. not a party President, but a President of the whole people; for a party President disfranchises the opposing party. Have a President who will maintain every man in his rights. I wish all of you to do all the good you can. We will try to convert the nations into one solid union. I despise the principle that divides the nation into parties and factions. I want it to grow up like a green bay tree, straight and tall. Damn the system of splitting up the nation into opposite belligerent parties…….There is power and influence enough among us to vote in a good President."
I would have to agree. I do fear that a two party system will destroy are freedom to vote for who we feel will do the best job,
