An ideology built entirely on lies -and this accurately defines the underlying belief system of the left, which is Marxism- cannot be implemented honestly and openly. It can only be advanced through the total intimidation and silencing of all opposition, along with an incessant barrage of more lies. The mere presence of truth can deal a fatal blow to it.
The leftist Fake News crowd rarely mentions the Arizona audit, but when they do their "coverage" is venomous and disparaging. Moreover, the audit is being condemned on a "bipartisan" basis (assuming leftist Democrats and their RINO lackeys aren't actually in the same "party") as everything from "criminal" to "an attack on the Constitution," to flatly "un-American." Excuses and justifications for such accusations vary wildly, the only element of consistency among them being the frenzied effort to stop the audit by any means, before any factual information can be derived from it.
When voices of sanity are finally heard (and understandably, these are only from the right), they ask: If the vote in November was conducted honestly and legitimately, why would anyone be concerned about an audit? Under those circumstances, all it could accomplish would be to validate the leftist Democrat claims that the election was conducted honestly and legitimately. And of course the underlying reason for all the leftist Democrat and RINO squalling becomes self-evident at that point.
Nevertheless, this all-encompassing question needs to be repeated on every possible occasion! The tenor of leftist Democrat and RINO rancor over the audit is itself evidence of how thoroughly corrupt the "System" is, an that everyone knows it. The loudest voices must be identified and indelibly tagged for their complicity in the election theft and the ongoing attempted coup of the United States of America. Otherwise, regardless of any audit outcome, the cancer will remain in place, to metastasize once again, the moment an opportunity is presented.
