“Voting is the adult version of writing a letter to Santa”

“Right now, it feels like voting is the adult version of writing a letter to Santa Claus” was said by Luke Davis, CEO of PlaceAVote, and printed in Wired magazine on October 22, 2015. That is, voting is useless and doesn’t make a difference.

Congress Is Broken. That Doesn’t Mean Tech Can Fix It.
The internet can replace a lot of middlemen. But not, unfortunately, Congress.

(...)
Congress is a hot mess, and the American people know it. So it’s no wonder, then, that technologists like Luke Davis want to help fix it. He’s the CEO of a new, soon-to-launch startup called PlaceAVote, which will give members of the public the chance to vote on bills before Congress in hopes that elected officials in their districts will agree to vote according to how their constituencies voted.
 
“Right now, it feels like voting is the adult version of writing a letter to Santa Claus,” says Davis, who’s received backing from Silicon Valley’s most notorious secessionist, Tim Draper.

Voting is like writing a letter to Santa asking for a rocket ship.

Voting is like sending letter to Santa Claus. In both cases it’s all about naive belief that dream will come true.

Voting is like writing a letter to Santa Clause, some one that you didn’t intend may see what you wanted but ultimately, you’re not really changing anything directly.

Voting is just the adult version of writing a letter to santa. You may think it actually helps but, in reality, there are people you don’t want to be in control that already decided what you’re getting

Voting is essentially like writing a letter to Santa, but for adults.

Voting in politicians with the hope of bettering your life is the adult version of writing a letter to Santa.
