You SHOULD know about politics, you fool!

“I don’t really know anything about politics is a pretty pathetic statement that far too many (young) people say these days.

Be informed. Know what’s going on. You don’t have to be an expert, but please

If you are overwhelmed, start small.
But we need you, so getcha head in the game.

As citizens we have the privilege and duty of electing office holders and influencing public policy. Participation in the political process affects our communities and nation today and in the future.

Latter-day Saints as citizens are to seek out and then uphold leaders who will act with integrity and are wise, good, and honest.

Therefore…we urge you to study the issues and candidates carefully and prayerfully, and then to vote for and actively support those you believe will most nearly carry out your ideas of good government.

Know what’s up in the political arena.

Thanks!
