Bullshit. I’m “NeverTrump” but I come from the populist base. I oppose DeSantis bcuz he’s not conservative. He’s authoritarian. He uses government to punish individuals & private companies. I oppose him bcuz he doesn’t believe in freedom, free speech, or the Constitution. I do.
The test for "NeverTrump" intellecuals is where they stand on DeSantis. He should be their guy: elite education, military background, leadership experience, impeccable character. If they can't get behind him, the takeaway is clear: it's not about principles; they serve the Left.

Replying to @WalshFreedom
All who back DeSantis--esp people who call themselves "liberals" or "free market conservatives"--are missing this point: DeSantis is a post-Trump authoritarian who has shown he will use govt power to punish his opponents. He's not a traditional Republican like Romney or McCain.

Very dangerous as someone who is a liberal and love HW Bush even though he is not perfect.

How is Mitt Romney a ‘traditional Republican’ when so many people (including his political allies) have called him out for being so inconsistent on literally every issues!? Is being a ‘traditional Republican’ just a Republican that’s an inconsistent person!?

If he were, he would surely stand no chance of being elected. Just like them.
