In the spring of 1979
In the of Britain's "Winter of Discontent"
Margaret Thatcher's Conservative Party
Won a landslide victory
The Iron took the helm of a fading Britain
The man of Europe
As it had to be known
But she refused to accept that decay
Was inevitable
And the job of the British governmen
Was to decline
Britain, believed, do better

"Some socialists to believe
That people should be numbers in a state computer
We they should be individuals
We're all unequal
No one, thank heavens, is quite like else
However much the socialists
May pretend otherwise
And we that everyone
Has the to be unequal
But to us
Every human being is equally important"

And while she had no shortage of critics
"The Prime is aware that
I detest every single one of her domestic policies
And I have never fact"
"I think the Gentleman knows
That I have the same contempt
For his policies
As the the people of east Europe
Who experienced them..."
She was secure in her faith
That her conservative vision was right
"One of the debates of our time
Is about how much of your money
Should be spent by the state
And how much you should keep
To spend on your family
If the state wishes to spend more
It can do so by borrowing savings
Or by taxing you more
And it's no good thinking someone else will pay
That someone else is you"
She knew Ronald knew
That markets and a free people
Are the best defense against tyranny
And that peace comes strength
Not accommodation
"Mr. Speaker
Wars are not caused
By the build-up of weapons
They are caused when an aggressor
Believes he can achieve his objectives
At an price"

America now at a crossroads
One path leads to deficits
Decreasing influence and decline
The other a dream
We all want

"Mr. Chairman
People want to live in peace
Real lasting peace
The that comes
From of the state
And being able to run own life
Spend own money
And make your own choices
And, above all
The peace of a country
Which is defended
Against any potential adversary"
As we stock of our choices
The legacy of Britain's Iron Lady
