I am deeply saddened by the loss of Margaret Thatcher. Yet another icon of freedom and conservative principles is gone. She stood for free markets, against communism and socialism, and restored her nation’s greatness. We are so starving for this type of resolute principled leadership today and must ensure there is a next generation of leaders waiting to take up the gauntlet.
Read her words, and you’ll understand why I respect her so.
“If you just set out to be liked, you will be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and would achieve nothing. ”
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
“I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.”
“When I’m out of politics I’m going to run a business, it’ll be called rent-a-spine”
