Useless Nations turns down election request

I don't know why there hasn't been more of an outcry about these fringe groups trying to get a society of third world dictators to come and interfere in our business:
UNITED NATIONS - Seven American activist groups asked the United Nations on Monday to provide international observers for next month's presidential election....

...But the seven groups say it's not clear that the European observers will have the force of international law behind them since they are invited guests.

Other organizations signing the petition include the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, based in Philadelphia; the National Welfare Rights Union and the Michigan Welfare Rights Union, based in Detroit; the Independent Progressive Politics Network, headquartered in Bloomfield, N.J.; Seacoast Peace Response, based in Portsmouth, N.H.; and the North Shore Massachusetts chapter of the Alliance for Democracy.

I'm not sure what I would do if some yahoo from a backwater country tried to interfere or observe me on election day...would not be nice, I can tell you.
