Cause for Concern: Foreign Election Monitors for the USA

Tom DeWeese, President of the American Policy Center, in a commentary for the CNS (Cybercast News Service), details disturbing information about foreign election monitors present in the U.S. to "ensure" that the elections this November are "transparent and fair," and that "every person's voice is heard, every person's vote is counted." Among those active in this monitoring are former President Jimmy Carter.

Have I missed something here? Have we somehow become a "banana republic" without anyone in the USA noticing? Did we forget how to conduct an election after, what, 216 or so years of voting, and need help from the United Nations? OK, regular readers already know I'm a paranoid nutcase about the coming "one world government," but I can't help but find the comments of people such as Representative Barbara Lee, a California Democrat, and Eddie Bernice Johnson, the Texas Democrat who is the leader of the thirteen members of Congress who originally started the election-monitoring process by writing to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to be offensive and downright stupid; maybe even disloyal. Am I off the track here? Can somebody straighten me out on this?
