Novelist Brad Thor has spent months bashing Donald Trump, and on Tuesday he explained why: liberty.
"Liberty is my litmus test. I weigh all actions of my government and those who seek office, against it," Thor wrote in a lengthy Facebook post.
"The ledger of freedom is incorruptible; its pages open for anyone to examine, and most importantly — to learn from."
After describing the steps he's taken to champion for liberty, Thor continued:
"From taking back the United States House in 2010, to taking back the Senate in 2014, we have won battle after battle for liberty. In so doing, we have placed principled, limited government Americans in office. We knew the war wouldn’t be won overnight, but rather that it would be won over time. We have been steadfast, resolute, and successful.
"But in the opinion of some of our fellow Americans, we have not been quick enough. Rather than continue to fight, a plurality of voters in the Republican primary has decided to drop an atom bomb on Washington, D.C. That atom bomb is Donald Trump.
"And so I come to my explanation. When I apply my litmus test of liberty to Donald Trump, he fails — completely."
Thor, whose 16th thriller novel hits stores next month, said he believes Trump has "repeatedly worked to undermine" liberty.
"From supporting an assault weapons ban, the seizure of private property via eminent domain, the restructuring of libel laws, and socialized medicine (just to name a few) — throughout his entire adult life, Donald Trump has repeatedly championed the power of the state," he wrote.
Thor is a Constitutional conservative and said he doesn't want to vote for Trump or Democrat Hillary Clinton.
"I think they are both terrible for our future," he wrote.
Thor has been vocal about his anti-Trump views on his Twitter account. A sampling of a few of his recent Tweets:
