A hardcore Tea Partier confessed on YouTube that he might have to vote for Hillary, because he likes his Obamacare.

Conservative video blogger James Webb posted the uncharacteristically glum admission to his channel, Hot Lead Retired, which covers “having fun and Shooting [sic] all types of weapons from semi to full auto and other fun stuff that hillbilly’s [sic] do.”

“I’m kinda having a difficult decision. I don’t know which party to vote for in the upcoming 2016 election,” he murmured in the video, entitled “This Tea Party Patriot May Vote For Hillary.”

Webb — the “Commie-hating, Obama-hating, lead-spraying” gun enthusiast, charter member of a local Tea Party Patriot chapter, and stalwart Republican voter for 32 years — took a sober look at the last 15 years of his life and realized that the Democrats had done considerably more to help him out than Republicans ever did. Webb was able to retire at the age of 50, he says, thanks to the conservative bête noire, the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare.”

With weary resignation, Webb concluded: “I’m leaning toward voting for Hillary unless something major comes up. I don’t trust the Republicans anymore. They’re wanting to repeal the Obamacare. And I don’t want to do that, man.”

“I dont know… just a tough decision”

In case anyone suspects Webb doesn’t have the Tea Party bona fides, you are free to peruse his various video rants, in which he calls Ferguson protesters “worthless thugs,” blames the insidious influence of the media for turning his coffee gay, and expounds on his decision to boycott The Walking Dead because it featured a gay kiss. (“There’s no way gays can survive a zombie attack,” Webb says. “They’re too weak. It’s unrealistic.”)
