66 of 68 people found the following review helpful By Paul Jacobs on April 19, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book encapsulates years of research to provide what used to come from investigative journalists -- before mainstream corporate media cornered the market on misinformation and tabloid news. A loser can win a rigged election in America because counting the vote is now the privy of private enterprise. Allegations of election fraud are doused by a state of denial that it can't happen in the greatest democracy in the world. But fact after fact reveals that, just like the public airwaves, there is no Fairness Doctrine when it comes to elections. Loser Take All equally blames Republican operatives, spineless Democrats, and a complacent Fourth Estate for turning our great republic into a renegade nation. There is a sliver of hope to return our government to We the People. Read this book, if you dare, and then share it with others.

Format: Paperback
Unlike the reportage leading up the invasion of Iraq, which relied heavily on anonymous sources who spoon fed mainstream reporters wild tales of Iraq's vast weapons cache, lapped up by Pulitzer Prize winning journalists and printed as fact, the reports about stolen elections and the massive purge of minorities and poor people from voter rolls in "Loser Take All" is backed up by smoking gun evidence in the form of documents and on the record accounts from public officials and behind-the-scenes executives employed by e-voting companies.

"Loser Take All" is indeed an important historical document; a damning indictment of the electoral process that also tells the real story of how Bush was "elected" to a second term.

Format: Paperback
By definition, in any democracy or republic, the minority interest is always seeking to become the (ruling) majority. Short of that, even at 49.9% in a 2 way race, the "first past the post" system of elections such as we have here in the United States, creates what can fairly be called a "Guaranteed Minority Disfranchisement System" of voting, whereby the alleged losers of the election get zero representation from the party of their choice, while the "winners take all." Thus, the apt title "Loser Take All" is a reflection of the human desire to "compete and win in the 21st Century" (to borrow a phrase from Clinton), and many a commentator has noted the culture of cheating that's developed in America from SAT exams to baseball steroids to Enron.

It should be clear from even this short discussion that since elections are purely procedural measures to measure the will of the people, they don't promise us, even when properly run, a *just* result on the *substantive* level (i.e., a "Hitler",for example, could conceivably be legitimately elected, though probably not without some deception of the public as to intentions...). Thus, those individuals or minorities who feel VERY passionate about politics -- whether for ideological reasons, moral reasons, financial reasons, reasons of power-mongering, or any other way of being convinced or sold on a course of action for any ballot measure or race, is usually MORE THAN ENOUGH for a sizable percentage of folks to cheat in an election -- they are, after all, doing the Nation a FAVOR (in their minds) and saving us all from a fate that may be (in their minds) worse than death -- like "saving Western civilization itself" from the alleged "weakness" of a Sen. Kerry.
