I’m single, I work a good job making $70k annually. And I still don’t know how I’m going to save for retirement.

I understand I'm in a privileged position since this is my first job out of college but it really hit home how screwed up the US economy is if I'm worried about my future when I'm earning a lot more than most people. I'm socking away 25% of my pay and I still don't really understand how I'll be able to afford a car one day much less purchase a house or actually retire. I grew up super conservative but college showed me that picking yourself up by your bootstraps is rarely possible without any type of support structure, so here I am

Going to my local Democratic Party’s Meeting!

Hey! So I attend my local party's meeting every month and we usually have time for a short period at the end where people can talk about why they support a specific candidate and I really want to speak up and say something about Bernie, but I'm kind of worried I'll say the wrong thing. Any tips? Or anything I should say?

Bernie: I’m not much into all these speculations and all these polls. One day a poll has me doing great, the next day a poll has me doing terrible. But at the end of the day, I think we’re going to win, because we have an extraordinary grass-roots movement.

That quote is from another poor article from Wapo published today (link is below). The quote is already pushing max length for a title so here's the full quote that has one extra line:

“I'm not much into all these speculations and all these polls,” Sanders said. “One day a poll has me doing great, the next day a poll has me doing terrible. It has a lot to do with who you're polling and what questions you're asking. But at the end of the day, I think we're going to win, because we have an extraordinary grass-roots movement.”

When President Bernie Sanders takes office in January 2021 what are YOU going to do to help the movement?

Bernie always says he can’t do this alone. He doesn’t have a really good answer yet to how this going to happen. It’s going to take a mass movement of people to get

  • Medicare for All.

  • Reform the criminal justice system.

  • Effectively address Climate Change.

  • Restore the rights of working people.

And the rest.

What does that mass movement look like?

What can we do?

What tactics do we use?

What structures do we have and what structures do we need to build?

Let’s help Bernie now by discussing and organizing what WE plan to do to make his/our platform happen.

When trying to convince people to consider Bernie, DON’T just try to convince people of his policies. DON’T list everything he’s going to accomplish. Instead ASK them questions and LISTEN to them

Researcher in social psychology here. You’re never going to convince anyone by just proclaiming his best policies and regurgitating basic talking points and just saying the things you’re excited for. People have their own innate biases that will make them reject everything you say if it doesn’t go along with their preconceived notions.

Instead, ask. Ask them who they like and don’t like and listen. Listen to their reasons and don’t try to debate. Bring up topics and ask their opinion on them.

If you find that they have views that align with a view, bring it up and that’s it. Don’t turn it into a pitch; people will not listen.

If/when they ask for more information, that’s when you bring up his policies, what he believes we should do, and his current approaches. The key is that they asked. They wanted to learn more and you facilitated this. That’s how you create long-lasting attitudinal changes.

Any other strategy will just cause you to argue with people who aren’t really looking to change their minds.
