United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week.
You gotta be kidding me. A black man gets on national television with a billy-club and threatens Republican voters and they brush that off, but then pull this? We truly are down the rabbit hole.

Of course, if they monitor those polling stations where voter fraud is likely to take place...say, the south side of Chicago, Philadelphia, any large NJ city, Memphis TN, East St Louis, IL, Gary IN, LA, the Edgecombe county side of Rocky Mount to name a few, then, what the heck, let them do it.

I just find it incredibly offensive that the most likely crowd to promote an unfair election want to "validate" their results using folks who have absolutely no jurisdiction. There are no depths to which a Liberal, Progressive, or Democrat won't stoop.

News Flash... It is UNLAWFUL under North Carolina law for any person other than voters, duly-sworn election officials or observers appointed IN ADVANCE by recognized political parties to enter a polling place on election day... UN observers will not be allowed in North Carolina precincts, IMHO. This may set up a Tenth Amendment issue, if UN officials try to crash NC polling places... I wonder who the UN might appoint to observe our elections... Iranians? Libyans? Syrians? Red Chinese? Darfurians? Somalians? Russians? Bulgarians? Saudis?

Sadly, it ain't a pun....it's a fact of life.

The UN stands by and watches attrocities happen because they have no balls. They better stay in the car unless they want an ass whooping.
The only thing O consistently delivers is uncertainty.

I have no problem with monitors at our polling places but I do have a problem if they are not observing everything, not just possible right wing efforts to disenfranchise voters. The right to vote is far too precious for any disenfranchisement to be tolerated.

. What does that mean? Census every 4 years, sworn vote. When does your right to vote, and apathy become a problem? Buses? Food? Tax Dollars? What is deisenfranchisment?

Hey, deros, what do you think of the New Black Panther Party? Are you a member of that party? http://www.theblaze.com/stories/federal-court-obama-appointees-interfered-with-prosecution-in-new-black-panther-voter-intimidation-case/

By refusing to verify who a person is that is allowed to vote, I have a fear that I am being disenfranchised as a voter and my vote may be cancelled out by an illegal voter.
