Although Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin has refused to concede defeat, preliminary results show his Democratic opponent Andy Beshear beating him by a narrow margin in yesterday’s gubernatorial race.
The final count showed Bevin trailing by a mere 4,658 votes, or 0.3 percentage points. This is well under the 28,427 votes collected by the Libertarian Party gubernatorial candidate John Hicks, who received 2 percent of the vote in the election.
While it may not be the case that Libertarian voters would preferred Bevin if Hicks were theoretically removed from the ballot, the Libertarian Party of Kentucky (LPK) is taking great pride in their role as anti-Republican spoiler. They are rubbing it in the face of Bevin voters, flaunting their role in handing the governorship over to a socialist liberal.
“In an ideal world, we elect Libertarian candidates and advance liberty. Failing that, we push mainstream candidates towards liberty to advance the cause,” the LPK wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.
“But if we can’t do those things, we are always happy to split the vote in a way that causes delicious tears. Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters,” they added.
The LPK criticized Bevin despite his limited government credentials and willingness to push back against big government entities like the state teachers’ union as governor. They cited Bevin’s unwillingness to cut taxes or support criminal justice reform, despite the fact that did both while in office.
“We began by making it easier for formerly incarcerated people to get back to work, passing a comprehensive felony expungement bill that allows certain former offenders, who have been crime-free for five years, to wipe their slates clean,” Bevin said in a Fox News op/ed talking about his success in implementing criminal justice reform.
“We also passed a bold reentry initiative that provides for more job training and eliminates regulatory barriers to employment for people with criminal records,” he added, encouraging other states to implement similar measures.
Bevin also vetoed a $480 million tax hike, much to the chagrin of the state’s far-left teachers union. The Republican-led legislature would later override the measure, showing how Bevin was an iconoclast who would oppose big government factions of both major political parties. He also signed a $105 million tax cut earlier in the year and made cutting business regulations a key part of his platform.
Because of the LPK’s spoiler efforts, the state of Kentucky – barring a possible recount or discovery of voter fraud – will no longer have a governor who vetoes tax hikes, cuts red tape for job creators, and promotes free market economics. The Libertarians have hurt the people of Kentucky in their futile efforts, and alienated even more people from considering their unpopular philosophies.

Idaho Governor Signs Law Banning Transgender People From Changing Their Birth Certificates
A rare victory for sanity in the state legislature.
Idaho Governor Brad Little (R) signed a law on Monday that bans transgender individuals from altering their birth certificate to conform with their severe mental illness.
Far-left activists are planning to file lawsuits in an attempt to violate the will of the people and get this common-sense measure overturned.
“Lambda Legal already sued the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare over birth certificates and won in 2018, and we’ll see the state back in federal court again,” said Lambda Legal attorney Kara Ingelhart to Newsweek.
“The policy was unconstitutional two years ago, and it is still unconstitutional today,” she added.
However, with Supreme Court now bolstered with conservative jurists, the courts may correct the legal precedent in the name of sanity.
In addition to signing this measure into law, Gov. Little also signed legislation that will ban transgender “women” from participating with birth women in sporting events at public school. There is a landmark lawsuit that has been filed in the state of Connecticut that argues allowing birth men in sporting events with birth women is a federal civil rights violation.
“As we look at the culture we’re in right now, to have opportunities taken away from girls and women by boys and men, it’s not right. It’s absolutely not right,” said Idaho State Representative Barbara Ehardt, who was the primary sponsor of the bill.
Big League Politics has reported extensively on the strides that the state of Idaho is making against the LGBT agenda:
The Idaho state house has approved a bill that would ban transgender individuals from changing their sex on birth certificates, in a rebuke of LGBT insanity.
House Bill 509 maintains that “there is a compelling interest in maintaining accurate, quantitative, biology-based material facts on Idaho certificates of birth that provide material facts fundamental to the performance of government functions that secure the public health and safety.”
The bill also states that “biological sex is an objectively defined category that has obvious, immutable, and distinguishable characteristics” that are God’s design and cannot be changed by man.
Republican Rep. Julianne Young introduced the legislation in an attempt to stop the LGBT war against science and reality.
“It is better to be correct than politically correct where human lives are concerned,” Young said to the Idaho Statesman.
Idaho is the latest in a wave of states that are pushing back against LGBT tyranny that is jeopardizing the rule of law and turning society upside down.
