Francisco I. Madero, President Elect of the United States of
Madero's triumph has been the triunmph of reason and faith
against injustice and pessimism in their governing system, the
dreamers' sublime recovery against the so-called practical men:
the apotheosis of the ideal, the glorification of the spirit
in its titantic struggle against materialism.
Afte not exercising their rights for more than thirty years,
the Mexican people have elected the leader of the recent liberating
revolution, Francisco I. Madero, as head of their Republic.
With the triumph of the revolution, he could have occupied the
presidency immediately, however, he preferred to allow the Nation's
most free will to show itself in the elections, and the Mexican
people, with their unanimous vote in the recent elections, consecrated
his prestigious role.
During the past four months,
this has been the topic of discussion: Francisco I. Madero as
politician, as revolutionary leader, peace-bringer, etc. His
enemies, who claimed he was unfit to govern, have praised his
moral character, his moderation and temperance, and even the
clergy have supported his candidacy, the candidacy of a liberal,
a Spiritist, a Mason. His philosophical ideas have been mentioned,
and cartoonists have shown him consulting tables or conjuring
spirits. To defame him, they have attributed to him the famous
Manual" by Bhima,
which was reproduced in part in "The Future," the publication
of the inner Reyista party. Nonetheless these vain rumors have
not influenced the people. The only thing they have achieved
is to bring attention to our incomparable philosophy.
