Like so many American conservatives, author Brad Thor is frustrated and concerned about the choice we’re facing in the presidential race. Earlier today, Thor laid bare his feelings on Trump vs. Hillary:

Our Founders realized that the normal course of history is despotism – the control of the many by the few. That is why the Founding documents sought to constrain government.
