The Car Owner (A Parable)

(...about the dangers of not voting or voting for worthless third parties so that the 'other guys' can make things as bad as possible....)

A man was the proud owner of a vintage automobile. Shiny and classy, he was overjoyed with it and thought it the finest in the world. However, the vehicle showed signs of mechanical troubles: it occasionally leaked oil, the car started hard on cold mornings, and the tires kept losing air.

He decided that his long term mechanic was at fault. So he fired the mechanic, and took the car and left it on the side of the road in a bad neighborhood. For the next two years the locals proceeded to steal the car parts and to otherwise pulverize the vehicle.

At the end of the two years, he ordered a tow truck and then returned the remains to his old, long term mechanic.

"That'll show him," he thought. "I'm sure he'll be a better mechanic NOW."
