how the election audit is going

honestly it's a good idea because now we can hopefully see whether or not there was any foul play by any side. that's like a druggie being stopped by a cop and the narc saying they cant search the mule car because there is no evidence. it's called an audit (and 4th and 5th not withstanding in my example) Will there be? Maybe, maybe not, but theres only 1 way to find out eh

Not so sure it's going to stop if nothing's found there.  It was started based on no evidence, and will continue based on no evidence.  I can't see people believing the counters here more than other counters on election day can you?  When anyone can post anonymously online about one of the counters being a dark government plant and messing up the recount or any number of random stories from "insiders." 

 

It's similar to Obama's birth certificate (just an example off the top of my head, there are likely others from both sides of the aisle).  Obama ended up - ridiculous as it was - showing his actual birth certificate to cator to the growing "birther" movement.   It changed no one's mind.  The same with this weird recount in a rented stadium, where one could argue the security might be less than on election day...  I could be wrong, but I just don't see this changing a thing.

 

If the shoe were on the other foot, I imagine the only response would be "get over it snowflake".  But now it matters so here we are.

I believe the people with a brain will consider the evidence found or lack thereof. Obviously there will always be crazies on both sides who refuse or keep looking for any anthills. I just think its a good idea to look for any foul play as forms of audits because it will discourage future attempts if they know they will get caught eventually rather than be defensive and pretend it's going away on its own. It goes back to the idea of "what are you trying to hide that you are so defensive about doing something that is mostly a nonissue to most regular people" in some sense and fizzle out on its own like the obama thing if nothing is really found. 

 

if they keep sayin it's bad for you to audit mkkay? then i believe people will keep escalating either way but one thing leads to another...   obv
