If you're wondering whether you should vote at all, the answer is unequivocally "yes, you should". You should also do a bunch more immediate and effective work.

But there are good reasons why fascists spend so much effort trying to get people not to vote:

Who the President is matters

Who the national representatives are matters

Who your local officials are matters

No, simply voting will not fix a broken system. Just like bailing water doesn't fix a leaky boat. That doesn't mean it's not important! Voting in a system that's less broken gives people the time and space to do the other work.

@calcifer it's worth noting that demotivating of electorate, was a documented election tactics successfully used by Cambridge Analitica.
