“Voting is like trying to fix a broken car by changing the driver”

Many people believe that you cannot fix government by just electing the “right” people, such as Democrats or Republicans. It’s argued that the system of government itself is what is broken.
 
“Voting today is the illusion that we can fix a broken car by changing the driver” was posted on Twitter by skeaser on February 25, 2019. “Trump and Kavanaugh are symptoms of a corrupt system, which you can change by voting as much as you can fix a broken car by changing the driver” was posted on Twitter by Andreas Lindh on September 15, 2019. “Voting is like trying to fix a broken car by changing the driver” was posted on Twitter by Sal the Agorist on November 1, 2019.

My Democratic opponent, @JoeNeguse, thinks you can fix a broken car by changing the driver. Wake up, Joe! Governmental incompetence is not a bug. It’s a feature. Conversely…Freedom Works! #CD2 #Copolitics #LP18

Yelling at buildings with signs never changed anything. Voting today is the illusion that we can fix a broken car by changing the driver. If the social system is the decease, then those who appoint themselves to assist its operation are the tumors and lesions.

Trump and Kavanaugh are symptoms of a corrupt system, which you can change by voting as much as you can fix a broken car by changing the driver.

Before you laugh at children who believe in Santa Claus, remember there are adults who still believe in the State.
You can’t fix a broken car by changing drivers.

We have a broken and corrupted system that will only serve to benefit the wealthy.

Our system will remain broken on January 20th. You don’t fix a broken car by changing the driver. You rip out the parts that are broken. Sometimes, you scrap it.
