We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Simple enough, Bob - Margaret Thatcher was elected from a constituency that had not yet accepted Socialism as the norm for a free-peoples' democracy, whether governed as a limited-monarchy/legislative combination or as a Constitutional republic. Nancy Pelousey was elected from Kalifornia, by Socialists pretending to be "liberal", and DINOs pretending to believe in Constitutional-based government.
It has often been observed, with truth, that in any sort of democracy you get the sort of politics - and government - you elect, not necessarily the sort you want. In the present case, we are all unfortunately suffering under the first case, due to Kalifornians' getting both cases.
What a splendid woman she was! What a bold thinker! What a great swordsman, standing them all off at the pass! We shall not see her like again -- not in Britain anyway. And they are the poorer for it. And so are we.
I find it incredible that after 13 years of Socialism in the U.K.
The United States elected a socialist.
We are broke. Gordon Brown sold off our Gold Reserves at the bottom of the market. Gordon Brown personally ruined what once was the best private pension scheme in the world.
Blair/Brown allowed unlimited immigration.
Oh i could go on.....Oh for another politician of the mettle of Margaret Thatcher
