MANCHESTER – Americans for Prosperity – New Hampshire (AFP-NH) released the following statement on the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
“As Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher restored a crumbling and stumbling British nation,” said Greg Moore, AFP-NH State Director. “She delivered many of the ‘Live Free or Die’ ideals that we cherish in New Hampshire, such as greater competition, lower taxes, limited government and an unwavering belief in the free market. She also reestablished a rigorous commitment to sound monetary policy and a steadfast focus on ensuring the rule of law to ensure that Britons property rights were protected. Her leadership carried Britain back to being global leaders in economic freedom, where it remains to this day. Her loss is truly saddening for those of us who value freedom, but she will forever remain a powerful symbol for the UK and the world of how to return greatness to a country that lost its way.”
