Our Election and Sovereignty at Risk Again?

Once again, I am disappointed to see that an international institution is being asked – this time by the U.S. State Department – to sit in judgment of our presidential election. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), is an Austrian-based human rights group which has been invited by the State Department to monitor the November 2, 2004 presidential election.
“Obviously, somebody over at Foggy Bottom misread the Constitution,” stated Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance. “According to our Founding Fathers, it is the ‘States’ – not the ‘State Department’ – which are in charge of overseeing federal elections.”
Last month, Kilgannon sent a letter to Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson after she and ten of her colleagues requested UN election monitors from United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
“The United States is the best example of representative democracy, fairness and equality that the world has ever seen. Any American who believes that foreign institutions like the United Nations and the OSCE are more qualified to judge any election in our country is unfit to hold a position of trust in the government,” Kilgannon stated. “On November 2nd, millions of American citizens will exercise their right to participate in the most sacred act of American democracy – our Presidential election. Americans have been electing their own leaders for 200 years. We don’t need advice from the French or the Germans, thank you very much.”
The mission of Freedom Alliance is to promote the American heritage of freedom embodied in our Constitution; to defend the sovereignty of the United States, her people and institutions, and to maintain the security of our country with a strong national defense.
