Lars Mapstead is a tech entrepreneur, road racing enthusiast, and 2024 Libertarian Candidate for President. He grew up in poverty, living out of a small barn in Big Sur, California until the death of his grandfather in a hit-and-run accident. Bounced around from relative to relative, he overcame alcohol, drugs, and incredible odds to found and co-found multiple companies, including FriendFinder Networks, Fupa Games, and Legendary Speed.
As Lars built his businesses, he has watched as in election after election third parties and American voices are being silenced. Americans are being forced to vote for the same two parties, and nearly the exact same candidates, over and over again. Lars is running for President in 2024 to unrig our economy, our election system, and our criminal justice system, and ensure every American has a fair chance at achieving the American Dream.Meet Lars
As a Libertarian Presidential candidate, I believe that the root cause of the division in America today is the use of government coercion to impose one group's ideology onto another. It's clear that the left and right are both guilty of this. The left wants to impose their beliefs on the right, and the right wants to impose their beliefs on the left. This is not only unfair but also a violation of the basic principles of liberty and individual rights.
The truth is, both sides are resentful of each other for trying to impose their ideology, and both feel justified in their beliefs. But the way to end this division is not to force one side to accept the beliefs of the other, but rather to embrace the idea of live and let live.
As a Libertarian, I believe that every individual has the right to live their life as they see fit, as long as they do not harm others or interfere with their rights. We need to embrace this principle and stop trying to use government to force our beliefs on others.
Instead, we should work to create a society where people are free to live their lives as they see fit, without fear of coercion or oppression. This means removing unnecessary government regulations and restrictions, protecting individual rights, and embracing the principles of individual responsibility and accountability.
