I don't think Conservatives would like her very much because she rejected religion.

PetersSmith: she was a supporter of capitalism, and I think more would like her because of that rather than her beliefs about religion.

She wansnt just a supporter of capitalism that would be ok. But she supported laissez-faire capitalism. The US tried that at the turn of the century and it didnt work. It just led to extreme inequality, lack of upward mobility, extreme levels of political corruption, and robber barons and monopolies.

Moral absolutism is a load of bunk.
