Dear Sir,

I attended a tea party. All the signs were hand-made and the people that held them ranged from 3 to about 80 years of age.

It was a quiet and orderly demonstration. There were no police. There were just concerned Democrats, Republicans and independents.

After we left I did not think one elderly man was going to make it up the hill but he slowly did.

My farther was 90 when he died. He served in the U.S. Navy and we gave him a military funeral because he loved his country and the flag and would have given his life to defend it. That flag sits on our sofa still folded as I received it, as a reminder of him and his love for the flag. When it was my turn to serve it was Cuba we all thought we would have to go and give our lives if need be for the same flag, but as it turned out we did not have to.

But my love of flag and country are just as strong, and my respect for those who have given their lives to protect her causes a lump in my throat as the flag goes by. I also love capitalism. I am not good at it, but I know it is not evil and has made us what we are. Thinking of the people that were at the tea party, and how they are concerned that our country is losing its greatness I was shocked to see on your official Obama Web site these words and “All 50 States are coordinating in this — as we fight our own ‘Right-Wing Domestic Terrorists’, who are subverting the American Democratic Process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox Propaganda Network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.”

They were removed from the site, but I saw them. Is that what you truly think? Is it God d**n America all over again? I think you really must hate America and what our people stand for.

Very Concernedly Yours,

David S. Wright
