The 2016 Legislative Session is over, but now we must start monitoring the Interim Joint Committee Meetings. This is where a lot of information is presented to the legislators about pressing issues for the Commonwealth. These meetings may have an affect on future laws and regulations. We are also gearing up for the upcoming election season, and will be advocating for liberty and constitutional principles on the ballot this November.
Take Back Kentucky is also in a transitional stage as far as our moderatorship is concerned. We are proud of our last moderator Adrienne (Gilbert) Southworth in being appointed to the Lt. Governor’s Office as Deputy Chief of Staff. However, we have been having a rotation of guest moderators since the beginning of the year and we are nearing a decision point on who our next moderator will be.

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.
