I am troubled by the fact that Democratic leaders have not made more of an issue out of election fraud. If this book has a weakness, it is that this issue is raised but not addressed in more detail. President Obama has a lot on his plate at this time but I would like to see an overhaul of the Help America Vote legislation. Fair and credible elections are at the heart of American democracy and should be protected.
Perhaps the authors will consider a revised edition of this book. I, for one, would like to see what happened to those four million phantom white voters in the 2004 election. It's hard to believe that someone could add or flip that many votes in a presidential election. The 2008 results should shed some light on that issue.
"Loser Take All" is indeed an important historical document; a damning indictment of the electoral process that also tells the real story of how Bush was "elected" to a second term.
The book is a collection of essays by qualified researchers and commentators uncovering and examining every aspect of electoral dysfunction in recent cycles. There can no longer be any doubt that both the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 were stolen. Even the touted 'landslide' of 2006, in which Democrats regained control of Congress, was compromised. Surprisingly, the nationwide switch to electronic voting is only part of the problem. Large numbers of votes (an estimated half million in Ohio 2004 alone) simply went missing: cast but not counted.
If you have a taste for exhaustive statistical analysis (graphs, tables, percentages, probabilities), you'll love the chapters "How to Stuff the Electoral Ballot Box" by David Griscom, "Alabama 2002" by James Gundlach, and the 2006 'alarming reality' of "Landslide Denied" by Jonathan Simon & Bruce O'Dell. Even if mathematics is not your preferred cup of tea, and even if you skip every other chapter (hard to imagine), the culminating recipe for rescue - "A 12-Step Program To Save U.S. Democracy", by editor Mark Miller, is worth the cost of the book itself. If the correct president is chosen on November 4th, these are the steps we must hope to see taken if America is to be saved from further degradation.
