Margaret Thatcher put policy behind a belief in individual freedom

WASHINGTON, April 8, 2013 – Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Great Britain is dead at 87.

Thatcher was a true feminist because she never let her gender get in the way of speaking and fighting for truth. She transcended labels, helping break through barriers and forcing the public to re-think stereotypes.

More than anything, Margaret Thatcher understood that freedom is about the individual.

She understood that masses of individuals freely pursuing their goals without undue constraints from culture or government makes for true independence.

Thatcher, along with her “ideological soul mate” President Ronald Reagan, ended the Cold War and triumphed over Soviet communism in Europe.

Thatcher and Reagan displayed nerves of steel and deep conviction to stand down communism. Their ideals helped end the cold war and change the world.  Their legacy of standing for their beliefs and acting for the benefit of the British and American public, and the world, helped create the world we live in today.  

One of Margaret Thatcher’s most famous quotes should be projected throughout the internet and air waves today and every day to come.

 “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
