My cousin BillyBob, conservative Republican, and I, liberal Democrat, finally agree on something after going over Mitt Romney's political positions.

I respect and will protect a woman's right to choose. I never really called myself pro-choice.

I like mandates. The mandates work. I think it's unconstitutional on the 10th Amendment front.

It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam. I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there.

I think the minimum wage ought to keep pace with inflation. There's no question raising the minimum wage excessively causes a loss of jobs.

I will work and fight for stem cell research. In the end, I became persuaded that the stem cell debate was grounded in a false premise.

I'm not trying to return to Reagan-Bush. Ronald Reagan is my hero.

Those paying taxes and not taking government benefits should begin a process toward application for citizenship. Amnesty only led to more people coming into the country.

I would like to have campaign spending limits. The American people should be free to advocate for their candidates and their positions without burdensome limitations.

I believe the tax on capital gains should be zero. It's a tax cut for fat cats.

I don't line up with the NRA. I'm a member of the NRA.

We agree that no matter what your political beliefs are Mitt Romney agrees with you. BillyBob and I thank Mitt Romney for getting us to agree on something.

    Obama was AGAINST gay marriage before he was FOR gay marriage before he was AGAINST gay marriage before he was FOR gay marriage. Obama is no paragon of consistency and I could post a litany of his "flip flops" but why waste my time.

    It has been said that one of the greatest debates of our time was Romney debating himself. No where has there been a clearer presentation of differences between him and himself. Of course if one of them should win we are not certain which will be the victor. Of course either of them winning will be a matter of how much the conservatives are successful at suppressing the vote.

    BTW good letter John

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
