The year 2010 saw two significant records at every level of government in the United States: record-breaking numbers of socialist and otherwise destructive Democrat bills and programs, and in response, record-breaking victories for Republicans on Election Day.
2011 will be a year of challenges, as newly elected Republican majorities and governors try to find money for the shovels, excavators and front end loaders that will be required to dig their states and country out of the hole that their predecessors left for them.
