RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

I thought Tory's were the American's fighting for the British in the Revolutionary war. I never heard it used in the civil war. ThunderkatzHo! 08:24, 26 July 2007 (CDT)

You may well be right, It was just something I remembered from school. I think we tend to conflate both little difficulties across the ocean. Please amend as you wish Keephappy 08:52, 26 July 2007 (CDT)
I just looked at Wikpedia, and appartently its both. I'll add the Revolutionary part and keep the civil part. ThunderkatzHo! 08:57, 26 July 2007 (CDT)

Old Tory Party[edit]

I don't know how accurate this is but if my recollection is correct the Tory party is an old British party with strong royalist leanings that after its collapse lead to the creation of the Conservative party and it was originally the term Tory was used for the new party in a derogatory way. - User \pi 23:34, 28 January 2009 (EST)
