    One of the pioneers of the modern libertarian political movement who twice ran for the presidency, Harry Browne, died at 72 yesterday.

    A long-time WND columnist, Browne authored 12 books, including "You Can Profit From the Coming Devaluation," "Why Government Doesn't Work" and "How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World."

    He died at his home in Franklin, Tenn., after a long bout with Lou Gehrig's disease. He is survived by his wife, Pamela, and his daughter, Autumn.

    His third book, "You Can Profit from a Monetary Crisis," reached No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list.

    Browne was a frequent guest on radio and TV, both as a political and financial commentator. He was a co-founder of the Downsize DC Foundation and DownsizeDC.org Inc., and a strong advocate of that organization's "Read the Bills Act," which would require Congress to read every word of every bill before voting on it.

    Sad to hear this. I have met Harry Browne and believe he would have been a good President. He got my vote twice.

    He will be sorely missed among libertarians.
