Michael Powell leaving UL
Below is Michael Powell’s last post at United Liberty. We think the world of him here and wish him the best as he continues writing. - Jason
United Liberty is shifting its direction, and so am I. Much of my work focusses on political economy, international relations, immigration, drug legalization, terrorism and the sociopolitical schism between the West and the Islamic world. United Liberty is becoming more focused on domestic fiscal issues, and as such a parting of ways is appropriate but not riddled with hard feelings.
If you’re interested in following me, I have just started contributing to Little Green Footballs, Charles Johnson’s incredible political blog. I also co-founded the pro-immigration website Voice of the Migrant and contribute to Gonzo Times. I also maintain a personal blog called Deschamps. Occasional contributions to local newspapers like UC Berkeley’s Oakland North can also be found with my name on them.
United Liberty helped me get my start in national political writing and I’m always going to be grateful to Brett, Jason, Martin and Shana for the break they gave me. Not only did they give me a break, they also gave me an intimate look into the complexities and peculiarities of Southern politics that my brief sojourns into Tennessee as a teenager could not possibly have given. If you are in Georgia, please come out in support of John Monds’ Libertarian Party bid, which Brett is working strenuously for.
