In my state unemployment shrank by half a percent. This could be because of the bailout like so many will say when the economy turns around but why is this not happening all over the place? It seems that red state economies reach peak employment first and are the first to recover in any recession which only shows that it is not economic policies of the federal government that decide the fate of economics but the economic policies of the state governments as well and red state always recover first which shows that red state policies are superior to blue state policies. It also suggest that red states are soaking up the unemployed in other states because there is more red state migration for that reason so not only to red states recover first we also are responsible for saving the masses in other blue states. It appears that red states are going to be the ones reviving the economy.
