one of Margaret's greatest quotations - " the problem with socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people's money"

You Sullivan haters will probably be surprised by this since you've incorrectly labeled him a "liberal", but he LOVED her. Good read from him on Thatcher linked below.

Quote:
I was a teenage Thatcherite, an uber-politics nerd who loved her for her utter lack of apology for who she was. I sensed in her, as others did, a final rebuke to the collectivist, egalitarian oppression of the individual produced by socialism and the stultifying privileges and caste identities of the class system. And part of that identity – the part no one ever truly gave her credit for – was her gender. She came from a small grocer’s shop in a northern town and went on to educate herself in chemistry at Oxford, and then law. To put it mildly, those were not traditional decisions for a young woman with few means in the 1950s. She married a smart businessman, reared two children and forged a political career from scratch in the most male-dominated institution imaginable: the Tory party.

A successful riot. The regressive poll tax was reversed and Thatcher was forced to step down.

She certainly saw the problem with the Euro far in advance:

"Basically, she outlined the problems with the euro perfectly, that Germany would chafe at the inevitable need for greater inflation, and that the poorer countries would inevitably be uncompetitive and need bailouts that would not easily be forthcoming."

Actually, I label him unbalanced and what surprises me is that you continue to think so highly of him. How's his Trig Palin obsession doing these days? That episode alone is proof that his brain isn't firing on all cylinders.

Neither would even make it through a primary here in the US nowadays,they'd be called liberals.
Thatcher supported socialized medicine,raised taxes,believed in climate change & gun control laws.
Reagon raised taxes & compromised with dems,to say the least.

Having said that Reaganomics laid the groundwork for corporations to get so powerful they now fund both parties.

I suppose had I been born twenty years earlier that would have been me as well. As it was, she was just the thick-eyebrow lady on the Skippy peanut butter comercials.

Rabid ideologue who suffered from pathological tunnel vision. Don't mourn her loss. Our government is filled with such people. Which is why it's circling the toilet and taking the country down with it.
