Today, members from the Kentucky League of the South held a demonstration in Alexandria Kentucky in Campbell county, at the intersection of Alexandria Pike and Main Street. In addition to the Kentuckians that attended, we also had several folks from Ohio, as well as one man who drove up from central Alabama to stand with us. This was by far our largest demonstration yet, totaling out at 14 people attending.
We had an overwehlming positive response to our demonstration. Demonstrators held up signs saying "Secede to survive" and "Feds Out of Kentucky". We had very few negative responses. Most the people that stopped by to talk completely supported our message and agreed Kentucky should have the right to govern its own affairs, completely independent from the US federal government.
At noon, we drove down the rode a bit and had dinner at a local restaurant. The servers inquired about the League and our message, and were very supportive when we told them who we were and what we stood for. They invited to come back and hold local meetings there in the future, something we will most certainly take them up on!
Kentuckians are fed up with federal overreach and are looking for a solution. Washington DC does not care about supporting Kentucky's workers or protecting our culture, faith, and values. The GOP has continually let us down, and people here are looking for another solution.
