Summary

The U.S. electoral system is broken beyond repair, says W. R. Wilkerson III-it's time to throw it out and start over! The politicians don't even represent those who voted them into office, and they certainly don't represent those who voted for the losers. Wilkerson cites numerous "squeaker" elections that were decided by as little as a single vote, where fully half the people were completely unrepresented.
