"One party rule" will eventually fulfil the prophetic vision of early 
Church leaders.  There will be only one party that follows the Lord.  
Everyone else will follow the adversary.  Ultimately this is the only 
partisan association that matters.  While this may not be the pattern 
for this day, the time is near at hand.

Excerpt from "Proclamation of the Twelve", April 6, 1845

As this work progresses in its onward course, and becomes more and more 
an object of political and religious interest and excitement, no king, 
ruler, or subject, no community or individual, will stand neutral. All 
will at length be influenced by one spirit or the other; and will take 
sides either for or against the kingdom of God, and the fulfillment of 
the prophets, in the great restoration and return of his long dispersed 
covenant people.

Some will act the part of the venerable Jethro, the father-in-law of 
Moses; or the noble Cyrus; and will aid and bless the people of God; or 
like Ruth, the Moabitess, will forsake their people and their kindred 
and country, and will say to the Saints, or to Israel: "This people 
shall be my people, and their God my God." While others will walk in the 
footsteps of a Pharaoh, or a Balak, and will harden their hearts, and 
fight against God, and seek to destroy his people. These will commune 
with priests and prophets who love the wages of unrighteousness; and 
who, like Balaam, will seek to curse, or to find enchantments against 
Israel.

You cannot therefore stand as idle and disinterested spectators of the 
scenes and events which are calculated in their very nature to reduce 
all nations and creeds to one political and religious standard, and thus 
put an end to Babel forms and names, and to strife and war. You will, 
therefore, either be led by the good Spirit to cast in your lot, and to 
take a lively interest with the Saints of the Most High, and the 
covenant people of the Lord, or on the other hand, you will become their 
inveterate enemy, and oppose them by every means in your power.


 (James R. Clark, comp., Messages of the First Presidency of The Church 
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 6 vols. (Salt Lake City: 
Bookcraft, 1965-75), 1: 257.)
