Why do we have such terrible representatives in office?


Could it be because there are people in the media who picks and chooses who gets covered?

One writer told congressional candidate, Greg Hughes, that he’d give him a call on “Monday or Tuesday” it is now Wednesday and no call!

This isn’t just a local problem. This is happening in every city across the country. Good candidates are ignored while bad candidates continue to run our country into the ground. Instead of voting blindly based on television ads- study your candidates!


Greg Hughes First Event


With little notice the Hughes campaign was able to put together an event that resulted in 33 people coming by asking questions and wanting signs.

Two hours is how long the event took place. There was free food and drinks (including beer). Jim Pate stood outside holding up the “Free Beer and Food” sign while people drove by they yelled “What’s the catch?” There was no catch. Just some good old fashioned face to face time with congressional candidate Greg Hughes!

We will be having another event soon! Stay tuned and go like “Greg Hughes for Congress” on Facebook!


Google Map Mishap in Maine Missed by Mainstream Media


What is going on with Google Maps and the Maine elections? Why were maps with Maine’s Republican Caucus results posted a day early? When I first learned Google had a map of the results from the Maine elections I had to go see it for myself. I first saw it on Facebook. Google later cleared the map.


I took a few screen shots of my own. I made these screen shots on February 10, 2012.

No one is talking about this mishap from mainstream media. No surprise there. This is just a heads up for those who pay attention to the presidential elections. Watch for news on the Maine Caucus tonight and see if the numbers match the results posted prematurely yesterday.

ABC News already touting Romney as the winner. Not once mentioning Ron Paul in their report even though he is a close second! Ron Paul claims it is a tie!

Here is a CNN report
