Best-selling author Brad Thor and his family are fleeing the progressive city of Chicago for Nashville. The reasons behind the move are pretty self-explanatory.
Thor cited the high taxes and violent crime in Chicago as the main reasons for his departure, Twitchy first noted.

To make his point, Thor linked to an article that states 36 people were shot, four fatally, in weekend shootings.
“We set the bar very high and @NashvilleTenn exceeded our expectations,” he tweeted on Sunday. “No doubt they’ll treat this author very well.”
He also said he loves Chicago and the state of Illinois, but the “Democrat party left us no choice.”
@wulfy Good luck to you. I hope it gets better. I love Chicago + Illinois but the Democrat party left us no choice.— Brad Thor (@BradThor)April 13, 2014
