The 2016 Kentucky Legislative Session is underway and we will be monitoring legislation regarding Liberty Issues now through April. To get plugged in to what we are tracking, please go to are ALERTS Tab to the right or the Legislation Tab at the top of the page. We are excited about Matt Bevin becoming the next Governor of Kentucky and look forward to having a Liberty ally in that office to work with.
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. We will be having a rotation of individuals that have experienced work in TBK as the moderator for our monthly meetings until we can fill that vacancy.
Handouts and Bill Mark-ups of interest.

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.
