238: Sorinne for President
with Sorinne Ardeleanu
Sorinne Ardeleanu is the daughter of immigrant parents who fled communism in the pursuit of freedom. She's an entrepreneur with a background in psychology, healthcare, sales, executive coaching, philosophy, theology and various sciences. Unlike politicians, Sorinne believes that love, acceptance and understanding of others is the key to happiness.
In this podcast, Sorinne talks about the problems with our current government, and how she would love to see change in the world. She is running as an Independent Candidate, which she believes compliments the natural laws of freedom and what the Universe has to offer us. She also points out that the way politics are ran, they can go against these natural laws which provides the opportunity for suffering and distress.
Sorinne also talks about some of the possible repercussions of getting "free stuff" from the government, and how this can impact our freedom. She also brings alternative solutions to our current problems in ways that would inspire others to grow and learn what true freedom is.

More about Sorinne Ardeleanu and her platform (from her website):
Sorinne believes that government should be run very lean and efficiently. She believes that many duties that the government has taken on would be preformed quicker, more effectively, more affordably, and more fairly by the private sector. She believes that government should make sure that private companies do what is for the greater good of all, so that Americans are not harmed by greed, incompetence, or negligence.
Government should care about protecting the country residents, including natural resources for future generations.
The Constitution's preamble specifies very clearly and succinctly, the responsibilities of our government:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Sorinne also believes that people shouldn’t have their tax dollars pay for services, ideas, investments, businesses, or causes they do not agree with, support, or utilize... especially by removing the requirement of a federal income tax, or at least a majority of it.
Americans deserve freedom of choice as to how they spend and invest their personal resources... outside of few necessary and shared public services which for the most part can be directly paid for by those who utilize them as well as privatized. This would lead to a more competitive free-market providing Americans with better rates and quality of services, since the middleman (government) would not take a cut.
Some examples of acceptable tax policies Sorinne is considering include:
1) People who drive vehicles on public roads will pay taxes for automotive related purchases, so that they go directly towards maintaining drivable and safe roads.
2) If a business is failing due to a poor business model or mismanagement, no one should be forced to save that business in the form of bailouts funded by their tax dollars.
3) If someone consumes cigarettes, alcohol, "junk food", etc.… they shouldn’t have to pay an extra tax to the government, as their bodies and minds will naturally be taxed from this extra added stress, if in fact these substances do have an adverse effect for them.
4) If someone owns their home, they shouldn't fear losing it because they cannot afford to pay property taxes.
The current tax policy disrupts the Natural order of Life. If a person or business doesn’t learn from their mistakes and gets rescued and bailed out by others, time and time again... they will NOT learn from their mistakes. They are apt to continue repeating the same decisions, only greater in amplitude. They subconsciously perceive the rescuing (bailing out) as a reward, instead of being inclined to change from the direct and natural negative consequences of making poor business and life decisions... which is aligned with the Natural way of learning and progressing for human beings. When we (as individuals and government), reward bad decisions and bad behaviors, willfully punishing good ones... our days remaining as a thriving country and species become numbered quickly.
