Rest in Peace Margaret Thatcher

“Do you know that one of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.”


“If you just set out to be liked, you will be prepared to compromise on anything at anytime, and would achieve nothing.”


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


Oh how our nation could use your bold wisdom today.

Rest in Peace ma’am.

    Rest in peace?
    Mohler also likes this woman. She is not much liked in her own country.

      Luis,

      She served to turn her nation’s economy around from certain disaster. She had a frank boldness that made enemies, but no one can dispute her contribution to her country. Her refusal to bend (“The Lady’s not for turning,”) on significant issues is a powerful example for Christians today, who though not fighting an economic crisis, are facing an increasingly hostile culture.

        Well, they were disputing her legacy in Parliament today. Just that shows that her contribution is held in doubt in some parts of British society.
        Her refusal to bend, even when defending a known dictator as Pinochet, is remarkable, and an example not to follow.
        I get your last sentence, but Thatcher would be the last person a Christian should be looking up as an example. It was her husband who took her back to church, by force!!!!
        Anyway brother, we disagree on this issue. Everything else, we are pretty much in accord.
        Bless you.
