RE: They wouldn’t vote for him in Britain in 1945.
Well, as the article says:
“The habit of taking things out of proportion would cost him. Immediately after the war ended, he was bounced from office in a landslide by the voters who were eager to implement socialism. Churchill declared that socialism would necessitate some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance.
But then, Churchill was re-elected Prime Minister in 1951. Which gives me some hope that like the British then, America might come to her senses a few years from now.
Britain has NEVER recovered from the effects of the post-war socialist government. The economic surges and the readjustment of the Thatcher years have only slowed the decline - not stopped it. The current 'Tory' PM - Cameron - is a joke. He would pass for a socialist any day, and if he made even the slightest move to reduce the 'Free Stuff', he would be gone in a heartbeat.
