Posted on 10/13/2009 1:24:00 PM PDT by American Dream 246
I would like to extend warm birthday wishes to Margaret Thatcher today. Baroness Thatcher continues to remain a role model to many people, particularly women, around the world. Her career is a collection of "firsts." She was the youngest female Conservative Party member to stand for election in history, she was the first woman to hold the title Leader of the Opposition, and she was the first woman to become Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
As Prime Minister, she took an active role in defending economic freedom and democratic ideals. Her push to privatize British industry and lower tax rates led to a substantial economic expansion in the United Kingdom. She was just as influential in foreign policy. Along with President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II, Prime Minister Thatcher recognized the evil of Communism and worked tirelessly to erode the power and influence of the Soviet Union.
Her life and career serve as a blueprint for overcoming the odds and challenging the "status quo." She started life as a grocer's daughter from Grantham and rose to become Prime Minister - all by her own merit and hard work. I cherish the accomplishments of Margaret Thatcher and will always count her as one of my role models.

Two great Ladies!!
Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t. - Margaret Thatcher
Yeah Sarah! You nailed it. And I will do everything in my power to help you become the first woman President of the United States!
Both women deserve accolades, but I wonder why this thread was labeled with “globalwarming”. Could it be that in an attempt to break the coal miners’ union Thatcher gave the AGW crowd its first big political bump?
Thank you Sarah Palin.
How lovely of her to remember.
She started life as a grocer's daughter from Grantham and rose to become Prime Minister -- all by her own merit and hard work. I cherish the accomplishments of Margaret Thatcher and will always count her as one of my role models.
Sarah Palin is hopefully our next Thatcher, I hope she plays her card right int he next couple of years.
..oh man, she really has a great sense of history and what a real conservative is—good show Sarah...
