The election is now over and the Kentucky House has been flipped, we are also happy to report that 3 of our biggest endorsements, Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, and Jamie Comer, won their races. So we are gearing up with reviewing legislation and discussing what we want to get accomplished in the 2017 session. To do this we need to review pre-filed bills as well as the Interim Record.
We would also like to congratulate Rick Treitz on becoming the new moderator of TBK, replacing Adrienne (Gilbert) Southworth who has now gone on to work in the Lt. Governor’s office. We encourage everyone to get to know Rick, get involved and help TBK restore liberty and Constitutional values to our state.

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.
