    Maybe they'll be able to keep dead people from voting this election.

    Of course there will be fallout, the conservative spin machine will spin this into some sort of anti-Obama thing, despite that Bush called them in not once, but twice...
    Bush 1 or Bush 2?

    I don't much care for the thought of it. America should be able to conduct a fair election. I do remember for the last several years the Republicans talking about the bus loads of illegal voters going around voting over and over for democrats. I would think they would welcome some oversight.

    Actually lets give an example. Remember the whole blowup in Wisconsin's supreme court election 2 years ago or so? Where a GOP member and organiser "found" 4000 extra votes that she had incorrectly reported in after storing it on her personal pc and all that? That would be a major red-flag on a UN report.. not enough to class the election as bad, but enough raise concerns. It is stuff like that. Now a lot of these "cases" often means the UN states that the election is flawed, but that requires a pattern on national scale for the most part.

    I would stop them dead guys from voting only after I collected all their arreas taxes after their deaths.

    There are already WAY too many people voting, this one vote per citizen system is not sustainable, in my humble opinion.

    Are you suggesting we go back to giving 1/3 votes to Black people? :P

    Absolutely yes. Plus, maybe even more importantly, those sheeply 3rd world public opinions that the US is somehow super fair in politics will then get a bite of reality.

    Well thats a relief. Hopefully if they see this guy that looks like Obama's son (if he had a son) they will intervene, since our own DOJ wont.

    Actually this whole story is BS, and the UN is NOT monitoring the US election. I'm sure you are disappointed.

    From the UN's own presses:
