Thanks for echoing how silent conservatives feel

I would like to commend the New Times for even daring to publish a piece like Gary Wechter's Feb. 9 commentary, "So, you didn't vote for Trump," as the media is so left-wing biased and don't usually like to hear anyone who expresses a different opinion than theirs.

The opinion piece was well written by this gentleman and pretty much covers how most of us silent conservatives feel.

When we once again lost the election in 2012 with one of the best and most qualified candidates in years, we were pretty devastated as Obama had pretty much turned the U.S. into a second-rate apologetic country his first four years, notwithstanding our economy was still in the toilet with no recovery in sight. So, we went home on the night of the election and grieved, got up the next day and said, "Oh well," and got on with our lives. It's very disheartening to see what's going on with the left. What a bunch of crybabies and borderline anarchists, because their candidate didn't win the presidency. Maybe next time they can pick a better candidate and one who isn't on the verge of being indicted.

Great commentary and good of the New Times to publish diverse opinions.
