Bernie Sanders: Don't go for 'half loaf' policies

"That’s Bernie Sanders' new response to detractors who say he’s “thinking too big” and his plans are unrealistic. Sanders went on the offensive against incrementalism Sunday night at a Fort Collins, Colo., rally, saying that when you run on a platform calling for a full loaf, “at worst you’re going to get a half loaf.”
But if you ask for a half loaf, “you’re gonna get crumbs.”
Sanders said Americans don’t need crumbs. “They need the whole loaf.”"

I think this line is brilliant

5. Yeah! When buying a new car, we start by demanding the car PLUS half its value, IN CASH ...

... just to "take it off their hands". That way, the dealer knows not to mess with us because we're serious car buyers!

Outrageous demands are ALWAYS taken seriously!

3. If you're satisfied with half a loaf, you get crumbs.
