In a revelation to Joseph Smith, God says (in Doctrine and Covenants section 98:4-10):

 And now, verily I say unto you concerning the laws of the land, it is my will that my people should observe to do all things whatsoever I command them.

 And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me.

 Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land;

 And as pertaining to law of man, whatsoever is more or less than this, cometh of evil.

 I, the Lord God, make you free, therefore ye are free indeed; and the law also maketh you free.

 Nevertheless, when the wicked rule the people mourn.

 Wherefore, honest men and wise men should be sought for diligently, and good men and wise men ye should observe to uphold; otherwise whatsoever is less than these cometh of evil.

From this revelation, we can pick out a few key points we should consider when electing people to represent us in the way God would have us do:

  1. Make sure laws that are passed are constitutional
  2. Laws that are passed that support freedom are justified before God
  3. Elect righteous leaders or else the nation will mourn
  4. Leaders elected should be good and wise men.

Based on these criteria, who do you think lines up best between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama?  Why do you believe this?
