    "Shy Torys"?  Wut?


    A Tory holds a political philosophy (Toryism) based on the traditionalism and conservatism originating with the Cavalier faction during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms. This ideology is prominent in the politics of the United Kingdom, and also appears in parts of The Commonwealth, particularly in Canada. It also had exponents in parts of the former British Empire, such as the Loyalists of British America who opposed American independence during the American Revolutionary War. The Tory ethos has been summed up with the phrase 'God, King and Country'[citation needed] ("Deo, Regi, Patriae" [1]). Tories generally advocate monarchism, are usually of a High Church Anglican religious heritage,[2][3] and are opposed to the radical liberalism of the Whig faction.
    There is this
    A person with a high level of social distrust doesn't feel that we are in this together, people are on their own
    Democrats in the USA have a high level of trust in their elected representatives and the Gubmint's ability to do good for the greater welfare of the populace.

    This is not Sweden.  This is not the UK hundreds of years ago.

    BTW, we won our independence rebelling against Torys, shy or not.  

    Get a clue.
