"Just as 'only Nixon could go to China,' only
the first black president would attempt to
reimpose slavery on a nation that once tore
itself into bloody shreds to put an end to slavery."

Letters to the Editor
from Robert Jackman, A.X. Perez and Paul Bonneau

Only Nixon
by L. Neil Smith
Over the past several days, since the recent general election, I have received countless despairing e-messages from individuals who are certain that the ascendency of Barack H. Obama to the Presidency of the United States represents the end of America, the end of democracy, the end of history, the end of the world, or some combination of the above.

An Instinct for Liberty
by Kent McManigal
I hope I am not alone in this, and judging by what I read from a few other people out there, I suspect I am not, but I feel as though I have an instinct for liberty. It just seems to be a natural part of my existence. I am not talking about anything mystical, but a natural, inborn understanding of what liberty really is and why it is important to protect.

by A.X. Perez
The good news is that Barack Obama is the USA's first Black President. He also overcame false accusations that he is a Moslem with radical Jihadist ties.

Barack Obama and America's 1997: Welcome to the Club!
by Sean Gabb
I have been asked by several of my American readers to comment on their presidential election. I did think to ignore these requests. Having spent very little time there, I cannot be regarded as an expert on America. Nor am I particularly fond of the place. I think its war of independence was brought on less by the Stamp Act than by Lord Mansfield's judgement on the illegality of slavery at common law. I also think its war between the states was won by the wrong side. It would have been better for humanity had the Union been broken up and its member states made into British satellites. Sadly, the United States survived, and was able to grow into the mercantilist oligarchy that took the most significant—because ultimately the most successful - place in the triumvirate of Soviet communism and European national socialism that ended the hegemony of English liberalism.
