Author: Joseph Smith, Source: Times & Seasons – 3:651
In the next canvas we shall be influenced by no party consideration…the partisans in this county who expect to divide the friends of humanity and equal rights will find themselves mistakes — we care not a fig for Whig or Democrat; they are both alike to us; but we shall go for our friends, our tried friends, and that cause of human liberty which is the cause of God. We are aware that ‘divide and conquer’ is the watchword with many, but with us it cannot be done — we love too well — we have suffered too much to be easily duped — we have no cat’s paws amongst us.

The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern.
What I don't like about office Christmas parties is looking for a job the next day.Author: Phyllis Diller, Source: unknown
Very closely allied to this party spirit is the national feeling that some exhibit. This national feeling is another feature of "Gentilism." "Gentilism" breaks up the family of man, and divides them off into parties and nations, having contrary interests. "Mormonism," on the other hand, . . . by drawing them from all nations . . . unites the family of man. . . . There are good and bad . . . qualities in all nations. . . . All real Saints, when they receive the Gospel, will readily relinquish party spirit and national feeling, and count such things as the distinctive ornaments of Satan's kingdom.Author: Brigham Young, Source: Millennial Star 16:210
Now, I am not caring today, for myself, anything at all about a political party tag. So far as I am concerned, I want to know what the man stands for...When I find out these things, then I know who it is who should receive my support, and I care not what his party tag is...Today, our duty transcends party allegiance; our duty today is allegiance to the Constitution as it was given to us by the Lord.Author: J. Reuben Clark, Jr., Source: Conference Report, October 1962
It has been out of a love for our country and respect for our leaders that the voice of warning has been raised. What causes one to wonder is why these warnings were not carefully considered and acted upon. Why is it that men in high places in government, regardless of party, have been deceived? I am convinced that a major part of the cause can be justly laid at the door of the socialist—communist conspiracy, which is led by masters of deceit, who deceive the very elect.Author: Ezra Taft Benson, Source: "Our Immediate Responsibility”, Devotional Address at BYU. circa 1968
