This week Shiva Ayyadurai (www.shiva4senate.com), candidate for United States Senate from the state of Massachusetts,visits Lost Arts Radio to discuss what led him to enter this race and what he wants to contribute to America. I first saw Shiva speaking on the Alex Jones Show, and was impressed with his sincerity, intelligence, work ethic, creativity and care for humanity. Shiva immigrated to America from India (legally of course) when he was seven years old with his parents, escaping the oppressive caste system that had determined the limits of his life by the time he was born. His background taught him to value freedom.
Known as the real, original creator of email, Shiva demonstrated his creativity and uncommon work ethic, achieving great success in the corporate world, both before and after earning multiple university degrees. Rather than just enjoy his hard earned rewards, Shiva has decided instead to enter the arena of government, with the intention to give back to the country he feels has given him so much. On Alex's show, I heard Shiva talk about individual freedom as one of the main ideals of America, and his desire to help people regain control over their own lives instead of living as slaves of government. That made me want to talk to him.
Shiva does not say that what he knows is always the last word, he is courageous enough to be open to learning more, on his own and from all of us, the people he hopes to serve in office. I felt it would be good to go in a bit more depth into Shiva's ideas and plans, so he was invited to join us for this Sunday's show. Most of his radio appearances have been short, but he stays with us for an hour on Sunday, and it's our chance to learn more about what one unusual candidate for office really thinks.
