    Did you see the countries that will be sending reps to observe us? Countries with seriously curtailed freedoms in both speech and actions watching American voters exercising their freedoms in of all places New Hampshire, the live free or die state? Talk about a total joke.

    You do not see the twisted irony of countries living in various forms of oppression sending reps to observe us as we vote freely?

    The UN is a joke in many ways but this just proves it once again.

    Why is the UN sending observers?

    Strange :confused:... may be they also think ( like many of us do) that things are getting out of control under the Obama administration.

    Conservatives Panic Over 'U.N.-Affiliated' Election Monitors | ThinkProgress

    counter to conservatives, the monitors have no mandate to interfere in the elections. In a press release, the OSCE laid out precisely what the mission of the observers actually is:
    Observers from 30 countries have been monitoring campaign finance activity and legal changes related to early voting and whether voters must present identification at polling stations. Observers will receive a full set of political and election-related briefings in Washington prior to fanning out across several states to observe election day activity.
    “We are not coming to judge a result but to report about the process,” [Joao Soares, (MP, Portugal) who has been appointed to lead the observation mission,] said. “In a country so well known for its diverse citizenry, we will observe how inclusive the election process is in line with the country’s own laws and international election commitments.”
    In fact, the OSCE, unknown to many of those panicking today, has had monitors present to observe every national U.S. election for the past decade. Reports have been issued by monitors for the midterm elections in 2002, 2006, and 2010, as well as the Presidential elections of 2004 and 2008. In none of those instances did the presence of monitors affect the outcome or votes cast.
