Formal Request for UN Election Observers

As a citizen of the United States of America – a nation that is supposedly “of the People, by the People, and for the People” and as a former candidate for the US House of Representatives (1998) and as a former candidate for United States Senate (2000) I – on behalf of the People of the United States request that the United Nations request that the United Nations formally observe the U.S. elections on Nov. 2.

I ask that I be recognized as a proxy voice for the people of the United States because the US House of Representatives passed a measure barring any federal official from requesting United Nations elections observers. If federal officials are prohibited from requesting UN observers then it is the right and the duty of the People to do so. And the prohibition itself should be justification for the UN to act.

Bush stole the 2000 election and was illegally appointed president by the Supreme Court who had no constitutional authority to do so. Since then Bush has defied the UN’s authority by waging an illegal war in Iraq and has violated International Law by issuing orders to torture, rape, and murder prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan. In short – our president is a war criminal and is intent on doing whatever it take to hold onto power. Our president is a threat to the security of the world and the sovereignty of all nations.

Additionally – the president of Diebold – the largest maker of electronic voting machines used in America promised at a Republican fund raiser to deliver the election to Bush this year. These voting machines are known to have “back doors” that allow people to change the results of an election after the votes are cast.

I therefore – and on behalf of the People of the United states of America – formally request all interested nations to send election observers to monitor the November 2nd US elections.

Any country where a large fraction of the voters express concerns about the fairness of the election process ought to have an independent, impartial auditor organization come in and oversee the process.

I believe in the United Nations. It is flawed, like all governments of the world are flawed, but over the past ~60 years it has given humanity a new vision for peace and prosperity. They’ve audited elections all over the world, and now we need them to audit the 2004 Presidential Election in America, especially in the most contested states. We need them, or else this scandal will never go away. And I believe they would do a good job.

The Republicans’ reasons for not wanting outside election supervision / review just don’t add up, except to further indicate their dishonest intentions. UN isn¬ít some conspiracy by France and Russia, it is nearly 200 countries, and the country that by far has the most influence is USA itself.

You may be for it, and most republicans ‘may’ be for it, but the top ones are not and thats what worries americans who care. It saddens me that people don’t relieze that politicians will use anyway of getting or reholding office, and no im not just talking about republicans there are many instences of both sides(or how many sides run).

Ive been in politic’s since i was 14, and yes i have visted republican websites, and ive been on this website for 3 months, meaning ive gotten most of my information from other websites.

Its obvious that you dont know much about polictics in that yourself can’t see that every politition is a greedy lier. It is common knowledge that a republican/whoever would want to cheat to stay ahead. its just that most of them also care about the american people. Bush doesn’t and has showed it time and time again, from him not testifing under owth to the 9/11 commision and the most recent middle finger(figurtivly) to the naacp.

While you were in the army or w/e did you listen to rush limbough? this may be the reason that you love republicans so much. See rush lies, and he also laughs at things like ppl being tortured. Jason I want you to do two things for me, dont listen to rush limbough, and don’t watch fox news. Rush Limbough is deffintly a right wing fanatic, and fox news is run by bush’s cusin.

Whatch Msnbc or somthing without a political view point. I only go to this site for because it is humorous, half of this stuff is spin and i know that, but its better then a republican station because republicans use 99% spin and they use there “terror alert” to scare the shit out of ppl so they use that to there advantage, since we have this great “war president” in right now.

I remember being young and how the republican’s blasted clinton on him being able to get a bj and they couldn’t, this was all happening when we found osama bin laden with our militaries technology, the american ppl couldnt see this because the republicans aired 24/7 clinton getting his dicked sucked. So they couldnt react to it and be like “kill that son of a gawkin’ bitch” so he was never caught or killed, 3-4 years later 2 planes hit the world trade center, 1 plane hit the pentagon and the other dive bombed into a field in penn. killing over 3000 ppl, and leading to the war on terror and eventually anal fucked into iraq. So yes the news media is not liberial, its conservative. just remember most of it is all SPIN.

Forget him, Joshua. Rightwingnuts just get their panties in a wad when their brainpower is trumped by a 16 year old. If they ever met my 6 year old grand-daughter…it would probably kill ’em.

Seeing as how you are looking at a draft in a couple of years, I think you have one heck of a reason to provide opinion and insight. Don’t let guys like Jason, who will bravely imitate his fearless leader in war by staying home, tell you that you have nothing of substance to offer.

I wouldn’t place too much faith in the will of the people making a difference with those in power, given the fact that they run things, we don’t. We’re just forced to pay their bills and fight their battles.

“Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”

Can I use this to make a similar declaration on my site? And who do I send the letter to in order to be considered another proxy voice for the crooks infesting DC, er, the politicians running our country?

This is in response to Josh, who has been in politics since he was 14. Maybe he should have spent more time on the English language and when he had a full grasp of that he would not spout off nonsense. The comment about blasting Clinton for the bj when they (assuming he is talking about republicans): another English Language error, show’s his childishness. Of course all citizen’s regardless of party choice should be concerned when the President conducts that type of behavior in the scope of job duties and not on his own free time.

Today October 30, 2006, Rush Limbough stated on the radion that Missouri could no longer vote a straight ticket due to the Democrats. Following is who sponsored the legislation. Does this sound to you like it is the Democrats falt?
“State Sen. John Loudon, R-St. Louis County, authored and sponsored one of the newly introduced pieces of legislation (SB-54) that would eliminate single-vote straight-tickets in Missouri and prohibit any ballot in a partisan contest from containing the single-vote option for selecting all candidates of any individual political party.”
