Bush Puts Nail in American Sovereignty:

Dear Friends of the Constitutional Republic,
Mark your calendars August 6, 2004. That was the day when another nail was driven into the coffin of American Sovereignty by President Bush. This is not hyperbole or needless lamentation, but a reality we must face. The free, independent and sovereign republic, now just shy of its 217th Birthday, is no more.
July 8, a group of 13 Congressmen, one of whom I regret is a member from Maryland, my Maryland, wrote a letter to Kofi Annan requesting that the "Electoral Assistance Division of the United Nations Department of Political Affairs to send election observers to monitor the presidential election in the United States

President Bush Continues To Surrender U.S. Sovereignty To International Entities:
By Chuck Baldwin

CNS News reported on August 9 that the Bush State Department has invited the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which is based in Vienna, Austria, to monitor this year's U.S. presidential election. Such action was unthinkable, even unbearable, to our country's founders and should be similarly regarded by every lover of freedom in our country today!
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) rightly warned, "It's exactly the type of entanglement that results from our continued insistence on being a member of the U.N. and having an interventionist foreign policy."
Tom DeWeese, president of the American Policy Center, is equally outraged. He said, "[President] Bush continues to give conservatives the rhetoric of sovereignty, independence and strength of the United States, and he continues to give the [opposite] actions. It's just outrageous this administration would allow this to happen." more

There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about what exactly "monitoring" of elections means. Here is the OSCE page regarding monitoring.

Monitoring is simply an observational and reporting process. In no way does it infringe on US sovereignty. The U.S. is a strong, "cloutful" member of both the U.N. and the OSCE, so neither can be considered "foreign" groups.

Further, the U.S. monitors many elections around the world. The Carter Center and the Center for Democracy are two US institutions which do so, to name a few.

Finally, almost all countries monitor elections of countries they feel have influence on their interests. Practically every embassy in the U.S. right now has an individual or team whose job it is to monitor the upcoming election, just as our own embassies have similar units in other countries to do the same. This happens all the time, and is really a non-issue in terms of any visible results that may ensue.
