The Obama administration has invited hundreds of foreigners to enter the united States next month to observe the elections that will be taking place.
The US does go into other countries to observe their elections.
The Washington Post reports:
For the first time, the Organization of American States (OAS) will dispatch 30 to 40 observers and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which has been sending small groups of observers to U.S. elections since 2002, hopes to boost its contingent dramatically, fielding hundreds of poll watchers.
Even Russia, where 63 U.S. observers traveled for parliamentary elections last month, is considering sending people to watch Americans vote, according to Yury Melnik, a spokesman for the Russian Embassy in Washington.
The plethora of poll watchers — some of whom are veteran monitors of elections in countries where voter fraud is rampant — is another sign that the 2016 contest is unlike any other.
In case you were wondering the OAS is an intercontinental association of nations and sovereign states from North, Central and South America. The OSCE is an international bureaucracy which has member nations from Europe and Russia.
Here’s the question I have, why would anyone allow members from these nations to be poll watchers? What business is it of theirs what takes place in our polling places?
Considering the amount of hacks that has been experienced by possible Russian cyber-attacks, why should we allow them to observe our elections?
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has already gone on record claiming the election will be rigged.
“So I hope you people can, sort of, not just vote on the 8th, go around and look and watch other polling places and make sure that it’s 100 percent fine,” Trump told a crowd of American supporters, not international officials.
Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul also claims the elections are rigged and “voting simply used to pacify the public.”
In pushing democracy, instead of a Constitutional Republic, Francisco Javier Guerrero, the OAS secretary for the strengthening of democracy, told WAPO that Obama’s invitation demonstrated the US is willing to be inspected and not just the inspector.
“The United States has never done it before,” Guerrero said. “But of course, this is a unique election.”
“We’re eager to contribute to the United States,” he added. “We feel we can give a different point of view.”
Yeah, well, frankly, he has no business in our system at all, even giving advice. In fact, not one of these people should be allowed in polling places come November 8. There should be local moves to block foreigners from entering. What do you think?
