On Tuesday, American voters waged a quiet revolution at the ballot box and took back the idea of government by the consent of the governed. Pollsters and media pundits were off target and Donald Trump was elected our 45th president against the odds. Here's a recap: Republicans will control the U.S. House and Senate; A majority of state legislatures and here in Kentucky for the first time in nearly 100 years, the state House. It was a sea change, and a firm repudiation of eight years of the Obama administration's catastrophic policies that doubled our national debt, overdrew our moral capital, and weakened our credibility abroad. In the end, voters rejected Hillary and the direction our nation was heading. They voted for radical change and now they've got it. Now comes the hard part: keeping those campaign promises.
