"Margaret Thatcher, a grocer's daughter, stared down elites, union bosses, and communists to win three consecutive elections, establish conservative principles in Western Europe, and bring down the Iron Curtain. There was no secret to her values -- hard work and personal responsibility -- and no nonsense in her leadership." -- House Speaker John Boehner
