Lis­ten closely to what ri­vals say

Austin American-Statesman Sunday - - VIEWPOINTS -

Con­sider the rel­e­vance of some of the re­cent com­ments by Beto O’Rourke and Ted Cruz.

Cruz: 1) O’Rourke changed his name to ap­peal to the His­panic pop­u­la­tion of Texas 2) Beto was in fa­vor of peo­ple burn­ing and stomp­ing on the Amer­i­can flag and 3) if elected, Beto would ban bar­be­cue.

O’Rourke: 1) sup­ports the right to kneel dur­ing the play­ing of the Na­tional An­them to protest the dis­crim­i­na­tion of black and His­panic Amer­i­cans 2) Texas should lead the way in pre­serv­ing the Sec­ond Amend­ment while work­ing to im­prove gun con­trol and 3) both par­ties work­ing to­gether to im­prove our im­mi­gra­tion sys­tem.

Ob­vi­ously, Tex­ans have the right to their own opin­ion and to vote for whomever they de­sire, but which can­di­date is talk­ing about real is­sues and which one is try­ing to mis­rep­re­sent his op­po­nent? Think about it. STEVE JESSEE, AUSTIN
