Advocate for Smaller Government

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.” -Thomas Jefferson

The founders of the United States understood that senseless, over-reaching bureaucracy was not compatible with protecting individual freedoms.

The Bluegrass Institute believes that:

  • Government serves at the will of the people, not the other way around
  • The proper role of government is to protect liberties
  • Government should be restrained by founding principals outlined in the Constitution
  • The more localized a government can be, the better
  • What belongs to everyone tends to fall into disrepair but what belong to the individual, the individual tends to take care of
  • Transparency and accountability is the best way to weed out waste, fraud and abuse in government
