Something to give all of us thought

I was speaking with a friend. He was a Sanders supporter (I was, too). In the current environment, he feels heavily attacked. He's not anti-Democratic.But he said something a lot of us on the Left feel.

"I don't vote for Democrats because I love them. I vote for them to survive."

Are these the people that need endless bashing, reminding, talking to, or condescending to?

If you're answering yes, you're the force oppressing us.

Become human, empathetic beings. This is important.

Most people that supported Sanders in the primary voted for Hillary in the general election. Don't let Russian bots and RW trolls divide us.

I liked this part the best: "become human."

Now that's funny.
