Had I been able to find an email for you, I would not have written this message in this space. First of all, I am one of your greatest admirers and feel that you are, indeed, a legend in you own time. Your music is breathtakingly beautiful! I am a SW Virginia native, my father worked in the coal mines. Mr. Stanley, the Democratic party today is not the one our fathers supported. Barack Obama is a Marxist Socialist who hates America and plans to change it into essentially a Communist country.
He blows off the terrorist Bill Ayers by saying he was 8 years old when Ayers was bombing America, however, he was 35 years old when he asked Ayers to support him, and he was 40 years old when he worked with Ayers to distribute $100 million to leftist organizations in Chicago. Ayers did not put him in that position because he was the guy next door. They are tight.
And twenty years in Jeremiah Wright’s church: “God d*** America!” Which of our neighbors would come close to associating with such radical America haters? I would hate for you, an American icon, to die knowing you had unwittingly helped bring down the country who loved you so much.
