If somebody with this record -> http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/graph/?graph_id=77398&category_id=0 <- then there's little hope that you've not already turned into a plutocracy.

I'm actually having trouble figuring out what the difference between the second and third lines are.

The blue line and the green points? They're the same, the difference is that in February 2011 Wisconsin's job creation legislation was passed, so it highlights the difference between before and after.

I'm still lost. What value to the green points add?

It's just before / after. I just took the plot from somewhere else, a vertical line in February 2011 would have been more to my liking: before February 2011 Wisconsin followed the US trend, afterwards it stagnated. In February 2011 Wisconsin's passed their job creation laws.

In other words, their governor failed thoroughly, yet remains in office because some people paid a lot of money to obscure this simple fact. Sounds like plutocracy to me.

Ok, so without the green points it's actually more impressive, see here: http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/graph/?g=7R5

I see, thanks. The first graph makes sense now; I think the entire problem is that the labels are terrible.

Yeah, sorry, it is nowhere said explicitly that the red line shows the US as a whole. If one sees these plots often enough, it's just something you know, so I missed that this needed explanation.
