BIPPS, Heritage Foundation join forces to promote freedom, sovereignty ahead of vice presidential debate
DANVILLE, Ky. – The Bluegrass Institute will join the nationally renowned Heritage Foundation and Family Research Council on an important stop in their 2012 National Values Bus Tour, which will be in Danville on Thursday preceding the only vice presidential debate during this year’s campaign.
Jim Waters, interim president of the Bluegrass Institute, will be among the speakers at a news conference from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at historic Constitution Square near Centre College – the site of tomorrow night’s debate – in downtown Danville (134 South Second St, Danville, 40422).
Along with representatives from The Heritage Foundation and Family Research Council, Waters will be joined by the Family Foundation of Kentucky’s Martin Cothran and other state and local dignitaries.
“We will urge the federal government to respect the sovereignty of the commonwealth and to quit violating the constitutional principles found in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of our Constitution,” Waters said. “A reminder is needed that what happens in Washington does not stay in Washington. As we have seen with the decimation of our economy in general – and our coal-mining industry in particular – the policies of Washington have enormous consequences for the commonwealth.”
All Kentuckians – including media, Bluegrass Institute supporters and citizens – are invited to attend this event, which also will include comments by local and national speakers as well as free materials on critical issues and action steps on how citizens can make a difference in 2012.
Watch Thursday’s debate from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. here.
