Ken Larsen: My name is Doctor Ken Larsen. I am the Libertarian candidate for Governor. I was born and raised in Provo. Eagle Scout, Vigil Honor Order of the Arrow, Mormon mission to France, Ph.D in biology from BYU in 1974, retired from the University of Utah as a Research Associate Professor of Medicine. Over 40 years politically active in forming new parties, running for various offices. The Founders said: "No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. " Most politicians agree that government should protect personal life, including clean air and water. However, the right wants to control personal liberty and the left wants to control personal property. If you believe government should protect all three, you might be a libertarian. As Governor, I will immediately end the enforcement of some unconstitutional laws, such as marriage discrimination, gun registration and the drug war. Other programs, such as government control of medicine, will take time to carefully unravel with minimum harm. I have written a book, "Peace On Earth" that explains my principles. It is about a man doing Santa Claus, having a near-death experience, and receiving infinite spiritual powers with a mission to go to Israel and make Peace on Earth. It is a fun story with a serious message. I believe this book contains the solution for rebuilding the Temple of Solomon without violence or bloodshed. I think the most important issues are economic. We face a potential financial melt-down. It is essential that we make all the cuts we can. We must stop spending money we don't have. Right now, humanity is facing several challenges. In every case, we can work through the crisis with mutual trust and cooperation. Astronomical events might disrupt our communications and power grids. We might suddenly need to trade and work together without a common currency. We can survive if we work together and set politics aside.
