SB 4 – Medical Review Panels – This is a complicated bill that will limit your legal medical rights. Put forth as tort reform to prevent frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits, it falls short of actually accomplishing anything but making it harder for patients to obtain full restitution when they have been wronged by the medical […]Read More
Right now, there is a lot of fearmongering by the media and some legislators about not being able to get on military bases in Kentucky unless you have a REAL ID compliant driver’s license. It’s time we understand something; the bases are Federal facilities and the Federal government can change their required documents to whatever […]Read More

Our mission is to preserve the God given rights that are recognized in the constitutions of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the United States of America. We believe in the American principle of dual sovereignty and that preservation of Kentucky’s sovereignty is essential.
The US Supreme Court has ruled that the States are not an extension or branch of the Federal government and that it is the duty of those States to protect the rights of their Citizens. The Federal government is a result of the States creating and ratifying a Constitution, and is therefore an agent of the States. Our focus is to reestablish the government of the Commonwealth of Kentucky as a protector of the Citizens of Kentucky from an overreaching Federal government.
In order for Kentucky’s government to act responsibly in its duties to its Citizens we feel it is crucial that Citizens exercise their civic duties and responsibilities. We are committed to education on the issues and involvement in the governmental process. Focusing on legislation and the voting records is essential in holding our elected officials accountable. So we encourage involvement in the election process.
To accomplish this mission we must build coalitions of like minded individuals and organizations that are rooted in Liberty, Freedom, the Constitution, and Capitalistic ideals. The motto of the Commonwealth of Kentucky is “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.” Let us not fall but move forward toward restoration of our founding principles to provide a better future for our posterity.
