    Democrats have steadily changed the debate in this country to focus on income inequality, job growth and the prosperity of the middle class over a more narrow individualized focus.  

    Unlike prior years, red state voters are beginning to take a more realistic, less ideological look at budgets.  Occupy Wall St started this but Obama's 2012 campaign and subsequent statements have hammered home this idea of fairness and a middle class focused set of policies leading to prosperity for all.  You wouldn't hear the movement from people like Santorum, Paul and now this candidate if GOP dogma held sway among their base voters.  

    I've never seek Kossacks so pleased with red state Democrats.  They're arguing for Obamacare, for a minimum wage increase and for addressing income inequality.
