Open the hood

To the editor:

What would you do in the following situation?

You are at a car dealership and are considering buying a car. The one you are looking at looks fine, but it the engine is making an unexpected sound. You ask the salesman if you can open the hood to take a look. But the salesman says there’s no need to look under the hood because the dealership has already given the car a thorough examination and everything is okay. The car is certified. He refuses to allow you to open the hood and look at the engine. What would you do?

If you were a wise consumer, you would leave that dealership and never come back. The salesman is obviously dishonest and is trying to hide something.

During the 2020 Presidential election, there were some abnormal sounds coming out from under the hood of our voting systems. There were some things that happened that made a large percentage of the country question whether this was a free and fair election. For this reason, there have been many who have requested that the state governments open the hood and allow us to have a closer examination of exactly how the election was conducted and how the results were arrived at.

It is interesting to observe how the Democratic Party and their allies in the media have reacted to these requests. Like the dishonest car salesman, they insist that there is no need to look under the hood. Everything has been certified. There have even been some judges who have said the election was fine. So you shouldn’t ask to look under the hood. And if you do, there is something wrong with you. And if you think you saw or heard anything that seemed fishy, then you’ve just been taken in by a Big Lie.

Some states have started to look under the hood. Arizona is doing a forensic audit of the Maricopa County voting system. Fulton County, Georgia, is considering the same. And those who want the hood to remain closed are attacking them fiercely.

I want to see the hood opened. And every American who wants free and fair elections should be suspicious of anyone who wants our election systems to remain closed and hidden from public view.
