The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday concerns election integrity. The Arizona Senate forensic audit is complete, and the hand-count portion of it confirmed that Joe Biden received more votes than Donald Trump and that voter fraud did not affect the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
Democrats, mainstream media, and uninformed Americans consider the election complete. They declare that the nation should move forward and stop performing audits. The mainstream media seldom notes that Arizona audit had various components. Yes, the counting portion did not prove sufficient election fraud to change the election results. The simple fact is that the machine count and the hand count each counted the same available ballots.
I read an outstanding explanation for why the hand count is not enough of an audit. The writer made a comparison between the audit and money: A man received 1,000 bills, among them were 170 counterfeit bills. A simple count would prove that there were 1,000 bills. However, a different examination would confirm that 170 of the bills were counterfeit.
The forensic audit looked at the type of ballots and found questionable ballots. Was there enough fraud to change the results of the election? The Arizona Attorney will make that determination, and the Arizona Senate sent the completed forensic report to him for further investigation. D. Hunter Schwarz wrote the following about the audit.
On Tuesday, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said in a statement that the report released last week “raises some serious questions” about the election and promised his office would conduct a review. Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem, a Republican running for secretary of state, has called for neighboring Pima County to conduct its own review.
Representatives from other states traveled to Arizona to observe the forensic audit there, and they went home determined to hold an audit in their own states. In fact, politicians in Arizona are calling for forensic audits in all the counties in their state.
The purpose of the audits is not necessarily meant to overturn the 2020 election results. If the audits prove beyond doubt that Joe Biden did not win the election, America will have a constitutional challenge. There are no precedents, so our nation would be treading on new ground. I would like to know for certain if the majority of Americans chose the idiot residing in the White House and presiding over the destruction of America, or if he won by cheating.
The most important reason for every state to hold forensic audits is to determine if the election in each state was fair and free. If there were election fraud, we must determine how it happened and how to stop it from occurring again. In the United States, there is one vote per voter. The forensic audits should result in more secure elections where every eligible citizen has an opportunity to vote and to have their vote count equally with every other vote.
