slide under the car and inspect all hoses, wheel cylinders and calipers for any signs of wet/dampness if the booster was bad the pedal will be extremely hard, a bad master the pedal will lose pressure... check the master...

I have been under the car a few times and no leaks and everything is dry and when the car is on the pedal is loose but i get very very little brake and i checked to make sure the rear drums were making contact and they are and i jacked up the front and was spinning the wheel and pushed the brake and it stopped but not enough to stop the car when driving!

Bleed the master. Pick up a set of plug offs. After bleeding put plug offs in. If the pedal goes to the floor then your master cylinder is your problem.
