Excerpt: Gene Amondson, (October 15, 1943- July 20, 2009) was a landscape painter, woodcarver, lecturer, writer, landlord, Christian minister and prohibition activist who was the 2004 US presidential candidate for one faction of the Prohibition Party (Concerns of People Party) and the nominee of the unified party in 2008. Amondson was known worldwide for his anti-Alcohol activism and reenactments of sermons by his favorite preacher Billy Sunday. He was an active member in his community of Vashon Island, Washington, and was described by acquaintances as a "colorful" character, known for his eccentricities. During his numerous interviews, he was known to repeat quirky slogans such as: "Prohibition was America's greatest 13 years" and "drinking responsibly is like teaching a pig to eat with a spoon. Can't happen." Amondson died in 2009 after suffering a stroke. Gene Amondson was born to Owen and Ruby Amondson in Morton, Washington near the city of Centralia. His mother was a German American homemaker, originally from Nebraska and his father, who was nicknamed "Red", was a Norwegian American logger, an industry which at the time was rampant with alcoholism. When he was a child, neither of his parents drank, but young Gene was exposed to drunken logger fights, attended school with children who were neglected by alcoholic parents, and witnessed the molestation of a five year old by a drunk logger. Gene was also exposed to politics. His uncle, Orville "Porky" Amondson was elected and served as sheriff in Lewis County. Gene was raised in a Conservative Republican household, and his brother Neil later served in the Washington State Senate as a member of the party. Amondson attended Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology. In college, he occasionally drank wine. His anti-alcohol views did not take root until he attended Asbury Theological Seminary in Kentucky in 1966, and learned about temperance leader and preacher Billy
