Obama Responds to Unemployment With More Green Cards

The ultimate objective of every Democrat policy is to increase the power of government, correspondingly lessening the autonomy of the individual. A favored means of accomplishing this is through liberalism’s main secondary objective: pushing the unemployment rate as high as possible.

An employed American, like an armed American, isn’t helpless enough for the State’s liking. That’s why, with one in five of us out of work, Comrade Obama is churning out green cards:

The Department of Homeland Security has just reported that during 2009, they issued 1,130,818 new Green Cards to foreign nationals, allowing them to work legally in this country. That number represents the fourth highest number of cards issued in one year.

Far and away the number 1 recipient is Third World Mexico, which is already inundating us with illegal aliens. Meanwhile…

In Feb. 2009, the financial institution Merrill Lynch announced that the nation’s actual unemployment rate had reached 13.9 percent. A year later, that number had risen to 17.3 percent. This figure represents Americans who have been laid off from full-time positions and are now working part-time, as well as those who have simply stopped looking for work, and workers whose unemployment benefits have run out.

The official unemployment figure given monthly by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is now listed around 10 percent, but represents only those Americans currently receiving unemployment checks, and is not truly indicative of the dire employment situation now facing the U.S.

In 1931, the second full year of the Great Depression, the average rate of unemployment was 16.3 percent, with U.S. unemployment peaking at 25 percent in 1933. We now sit in between those two disastrous figures, with an ever-worsening economy.

The Great Depression was the Golden Age of liberal statism, which is why our progressive rulers are deliberately reenacting it. If they are able to push through Cap & Trade and Amnesty, 25% unemployment ought to be a cinch.
