Another big difference, according to Campbell, is the place of religion in the public discourse. “Thatcher never talked about God,” he said. “She had a moralistic view of economics. She thought things were right and wrong. She believed in private enterprise, but she was quite tolerant on social, sexual matters. She never brought those social issues into her politics at all.”
Thatcher might, however, find one ally in the current Republican field of presidential candidates. “Someone like Ron Paul obviously represents one side of her economic philosophy,” Campbell said.
