We don't follow U.N. law or International Agreements. I'd like to see these "observers" arrested and charged.

The US Constitution doesn’t give the Federal government authority to agree to such a process.

International observers can go pound sand for all I care. I wish every state was barring them — that would send a hell of a message to the federal government that invited them in the first place, wouldn’t it?

Memo to the UN:

States run their own elections.
We’re not like the Euroweenies.

Any politician, on state or federal level, who agrees with the presence of these UN “observers” of our election procedures should be replaced at the next election cycle.

Yeah, but the US Constitution has probably been declared a “human rights” violation.

Where were these observers when Christine Gregoire stole the Washington gubernatorial race or when Al Franken stole the Minnesota senatorial race?

Right. No matter how the president or his sec of state feels, we are not under UN or International Law so I suggest they grab the next camel home.

Good question!

They must not be here for observing then...

Which begs the question.. why are they here!

Following the law can be frustrating at times, but if I have to do it, so do these socialist troublemakers.

“Where the observers when...”

Presumably adjusting their monocles and slowly stroking a Persian cat.

These lunatics need to be locked up in a padded room, not put in charge of the asylum. Hopefully the adults will be back in charge come January.

Exactly. They get no special privileges.

Except maybe some pepper spray to the face.

It should be pointed out that these are INSPECTORS, not observers. Their specific mission is to identify attempts to disenfranchise black and Hispanic voters. They are uninterested in vote fraud.

Hey UN, if you want to “help out” I hear there are starving people dumpster diving in NYC.

Plus, you already know your way around that city.

Bring canned goods, and a can opener.

I don't know why they're complaining, they have their “Republicans suppressing minority voting” report already written. Hanging around at the polls was just a formality.

I might give these folks the time of day when they report on the voter fraud in places like Chicago, Baltimore and Philly.

Call it a hunch, but I don't see that happening.

These so called "observers" can observe the polling places from at least 100 feet away from the building. Anything closer and they will either be arrested or shot.

Since they will be from the UN, I prefer the second option.

“It’s a pretty simple answer: The U.S., as a participating state and founding member of the OSCE, has made certain commitments to allow international observers,” he said. “That said, our observers aren’t there to interfere.”

Well that’s fine. The Federal government can make all of the agreements and commitments it wants but unless it is a ratified treaty state law governs the conduct of elections.

In other words the states can keep your arses out.
