Today I’d like to wish conservative stalwart and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher a very Happy 86th Birthday. Along with President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II, the Iron Lady helped bring down the Iron Curtain, defeat Soviet Communism and end the Cold War. Speaking of her partnership with President Reagan, Prime Minister Thatcher said, “Up to that time, the whole doctrine had been one of contained communism. That wasn’t enough for Ronald Reagan and me. We thought the free world was by far the best way to live.”
Margaret Thatcher is a role model for advocates of liberty everywhere. In the film Fire From The Heartland, fellow conservative female leader Phyllis Schlafly says of Thatcher, “She had an amazing effect on her country. She restored it to the private enterprise system and she spoke up as a friend of the United States against communism. She and Ronald Reagan were really responsible for bringing down the Soviet empire.”
Today we honor Lady Thatcher for her leadership role in advancing freedom across the world and wish her the very best.
