Don't get mad at people who invested a lot in the Bernie campaign. Don't "I told you so", don't insinuate they were stupid for believing in bourgeois electoralism. Try to be kind.

A lot of people are realizing right about now that the US is a country where wanting something as reasonable as free healthcare means you're banned from national politics for not being right wing enough. That stings a lot, and some people will need some encouragement in order to not fall into hopelessness and despair.

Talk to those people! Offer them hope! Talk shit about capitalism with them!

If the Bernie crowd still want to be in the fight, and I'm betting most of 'em do, now is the time to get them involved in local organizing efforts
