May Day! Painting America Black

A few stills from The Decline: The Geography of a Recession sum up what is being done to this country. These represent unemployment rates by county:

By the time this nightmare is over, the entire map will be black. If you think it’s an accident, name an Obama policy that can’t be expected to raise unemployment.

The playbook was written by liberal demigod Franklin Roosevelt, who was able to rule as a quasi-dictator for a dozen years by maintaining a stratospheric unemployment rate. It comes down to the fundamental principle that drives all liberal domestic policy: the more helpless people feel, the more power they will cede to their rulers.
