A Tweet From Best-Selling Author Brad Thor: ‘If Jeb Bush is the Nominee, I Will Never Vote Republican Again’
Halle-freaking-lujah! Finally, someone with a spine who is willing to call it like it is. I have always been a fan of Brad Thor… now more than ever. We don’t need another Republican moderate. What we need are Reagan’s bold colors and someone who knows what be a real conservative actually is. These RINOs pushed McCain down our throats, then Romney… both are Progressives on the Right and both are losers. I’m with Brad, if Jeb Bush is the best the Republicans have got, I’m gone.
Best-selling author Brad Thor is expanding the tweet that started a social media firestorm. On Tuesday, he sent out this tweet: “Hey @Reince & @GOP – let me be perfectly clear. If Jeb Bush is the nominee, I will never vote Republican again.”
“The whole of idea of a Jeb Bush candidacy and potential Presidency is managing the country’s decline, not fixing it, not repairing it,” Thor told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Tuesday, shortly after his tweet exploded across the conservative blogosphere.
“At this point America doesn’t want another Bush,” Thor told Breitbart News. “I don’t want Jeb Bush for President and I will not vote for him.”
“If this is really about what’s good for the country, Jeb Bush should run for senator in Florida four years from now and take it for the Republicans,” Thor said.
“If it’s not about you, Jeb,” Thor told Bush. He then challenged Bush to “help us maintain control of the Senate in Florida.”
Thor was not squeamish in detailing the current condition of the United States. “I believe that the problems facing this country are so dire I don’t want someone who is going to kick my dog less,” he said.
“We don’t need a patrician manager of the big federal bureaucracy in D.C,” he added. “We need an absolute constitutional warrior, not only someone who is going to whittle this government down to the size it should be, but someone who is able to rally everyone behind him or her.”
Putting a Democrat or establishment Republican in the White House in 2016 won’t be sufficient, Thor said.
“You put in a left winger, it’s going to increase the size of the federal government. You put in a squishy moderate, it’s only going to increase the size of the federal government more slowly.”
As Thor sees it, Jeb Bush is no constitutional warrior.
“Jeb Bush may slow the boat but he’s not going to turn it around.”
The Republicans are in collusion with the Progressive Democrats. I’m convinced they lose on purpose and they cave right on cue. If we can’t get a true conservative nominee, then a third party will be our only option. It’s that or a civil rift, which may be coming any way. We want someone who will get rid of all the Progressive programs, cut spending, balance the budget and restore our Constitutional principles and rights. What we need is the likes of Ted Cruz, Allen West, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin. In other words – the Tea Party.
