Newspaper Announcements Of The Death Of Winston Curchill



  I was almost fifteen when Winston Churchill died. He was a hero to not only to the British people but  to the American people. Margaret Thatcher reminded me a lot of Churchill and that is one reason I liked her. Churchill was a controversial figure earlier in his life. It wasn't until the disastrous administration of Neville Chamberlain who tried to appease Hitler that the British realized that Churchill was the leader that Britain would need to get them through the crisis of war. Britain unfortunately had gone too far down the path of socialism and as soon as victory seemed assured they threw Churchill out in 1945 to return to a more socialistic path by electing Clement Atlee. It would take a Conservative like Thatcher to rescue England from going off the fiscal cliff in the 1970's and 80's. To paraphrase Churchill who resided on both the liberal and conservative side at different points in his life said that if you are a conservative you have no heart but if you are a liberal you have no brain. I would differ with Churchill only to the extent that a conservative has a heart but it is expressed in tough love, which in the end produces a better result for most people. We are headed down the same disastrous path as Britain but I do not see a Margaret Thatcher waiting in the wings.


The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
Winston Churchill

Never, never, never give up.
Winston Churchill

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else.
Winston Churchill

Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.
Winston Churchill

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Winston Churchill

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival.
Winston Churchill
