In 2012 we witnessed an extraordinary erosion of liberties when the Supreme Court upheld the intrusive, overreaching, tax-stuffed Obamacare bill. As the year draws to a close, Republicans and Democrats bicker over budget and taxation issues that should have been setled long ago. Also, the president promises to take action that effectively negates the second amendment to the Constitution. At the state level, Kentucky's Democrat governor not only supports the president's destructive policies but pursues policies that labeled Kentucky one of the worst run states. Locally, the Warren County fiscal court attempted to pass an insurance fee bill that would have affected our insurance costs had it not been stopped.
It takes ordinary citizens - like you - to keep our elected officials in check. We need your help in 2013, now more than ever.

The Bowling Green SOKY Tea Party selected Jenean Hampton as chairman, replacing Paul Keith. Alan Blythe was selected as vice chairman. Cheri Werner was selected as secretary, replacing Barbara Bowers. We greatly appreciate Paul's leadership and support during his tenure, and are grateful he will still be active in the group.
