    With the Conservative Party in Brittain now poised to return to power after nearly 14 years in the political wilderness based upon voter disgust over their government's ever increasing debt, taxes, and worsening immigration issues, we across the pond have a president that the Brits are declaring as an example of how NOT to govern a country, with hopes that incoming conservative Prime Minister David Cameron will look to the examples of Churchill, Thatcher, and Reagan...
    ____

    President Obama’s first 16 months in office provide an important lesson for the next British Prime Minister in how not to run the country. The hallmarks of the Obama administration have been the relentless rise of big government, excessive levels of public spending and borrowing, little or no job creation, the weakening of America’s defences, the appeasement of America’s enemies, and the decline of US global power.

    ...On several levels, Barack Obama’s leadership of the United States is leading his country on a path of decline as a world power. David Cameron must learn from Obama’s mistakes, and take Britain down a completely different path based on clearly defined conservative principles, which advance rather than constrain British leadership.

    And with Cameron having quoted Reagan directly, it appears he is already sending a message to Obama that it will no longer be liberal business as usual with our British allies.

    The significance of the British elections has yet to be fully realized - but it will be soon
    .

    Tory party candidate for prime minister, David Cameron spoke to a group of small business leaders in England. He gave a rousing speech about change, but the positive change that betters society, not the kind Gordon Brown, Nick Clegg, and frankly Obama has done in the US. He quoted President Ronald Reagan, “The status quo is Latin for ‘the mess we’re in’.” Instead of voting for liberals that have brought down British society with their leadership, conservatism can give rise to a new, prosperous England.

    And Cameron's words regarding small business are spot on!

    With the traditionally left-leaning Brits turing conservative, surely America's 2010 Election will prove an even more decided shift toward conservatism as well...

    ___

    “Why do I love small businesses so much? It’s not just that small businesses provide the wealth, and the jobs, the enterprise of the future, which you are. It’s not just that social enterprises are going to tackle the social problems in this country. It’s because what you have done in your lives. It is the one word that is missing in this election: responsibility.”

    This is conservatism.

    Very impressed with Cameron so far. His battles vs Brown in Parliament are legendary. The guy is incredibly quick - hopefully he lives up to his potential as PM and helps salvage what remains of the possibly still-great British nation...
