During a period of time when England was experiencing a divided country similar to what we have in our country today, in 1976 Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher delivered a speech titled “Britain Awake.”
I can see why Thatcher was known as the Iron Lady, as evidenced by the following part of that speech:
“There are moments in our history when we have to make a fundamental choice. This is one such moment, a moment when our choice will determine the life or death of our kind of society and the future of our children. Let’s ensure that our children will have cause to rejoice that we did not forsake their freedom.”
Is there any man or woman in this country, having Democratic, Republican or Independent political view, with the intestinal fortitude to espouse a similar view for our country?
Now is the time for that person to “man up” or “woman up” during this pivotal time in our nation’s history.
