Incidentally true conservatism as we understand it outside the US is "Toryism,"
and seeks merely to preserve the status quo. It is most ironic to me that the one
single thing that led to Thatcher's downfall was her imposition of a poll tax. If
I recall my US history correctly, wasn't a poll tax one of the so-called
"Intolerable Acts"?
Not that I'm aware of. The intolerable or coercive acts consisted of:


Spam

Street Mimes

Blow-In Cards
