And I submit that, when people are honest with themselves, there's a STRONG majority who concede 1/3-3/5 of a loaf is about as far was we should be going. They just get wrapped up in ancillary issues and identity politics and stuff those painful admissions down down down.
While I agree with your second paragraph, the first paragraph is just attempting to pin a common folly of both sides
to only liberals/Democrats.
