Is America prepared for Ronald Reagan's Bold Colors Conservatism reboot to save nation?

There are some in the Tea Party who may feel dismayed or even discouraged concerning the election win of Tennessee U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander over Tea Party-backed state Rep. Joe Carr. Yet, this was not so much a loss as it was one of the defining moments in America's still yet to be charted history, where Sen. Alexander, known on Capitol Hill as one of the more moderate members of his party, according to Fox News, has managed to clarify a growing distinction between bold colored conservatism of Ronald Reagan and moderate RINO pastels of a deeply split GOP.

What voters in Tennessee saw on Thursday, and many other conservative voters saw again in Mississippi in the June 24th runoff senate election, is a Republican Party that is not focused on addressing conservatism of Ronald Reagan which works, but preserving a status quo that is preoccupied with retaining an image where it is better to "seem rather than to be."

The comfort, convenience and retention of power by far too many establishment GOP leaders in the nation's capitol have superseded the reality of the needs of heartland Americans. These are the citizens of the heartland who only want power over their lives, and want control over their constitutional protections. They struggle daily for religious freedoms and the certainty of an America that is truly America, and not a neutered '# Press 2 for English' nation.

Bold colors in conservatism is not only a mantra but it remains a battle cry as significant now as it was when Ronald Reagan first said it in 1975 when he first spoke in a video address to members of the Young Americans for Freedom.

When Reagan first gave those noble words as a way of helping to chart a return path to true conservatism, he was vilified and many in the GOP establishment mocked him and many liberal media pundits cast him aside as an accidental governor of 'California because he was a Hollywood actor. What the naysayers did not know or understand was that deep beneath Reagan's cool veneer were a vision and alertness to the call of American destiny. Reagan did not give into the valueless moderate rhetoric RINOs embrace; but declared a renewal which touched upon the heart, soul and spirit of hard working traditional values that Americans were raised with.

Conservatives soon began to understand and reject the pastel colored liberalism of moderate and RINO-type beliefs. These resurgent conservative Americans then as many do now, refused the tranquilizing drink of moderate gradualism which seeps through the veins of the timid RINO elected officials. These are the same establishment officials who only want to find the middle ground and demonize the resoluteness of conservatives like a Sarah Palin, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Mike Lee, Mississippi Chris McDaniel, and yes more recently Tennessee Joe Carr.

Consider what Sen. Alexander said the day after the Tennessee election, when he stated, "If we really want to take the presidency in two years, we're going to have to show the American people they can trust us with the government," reported Fox News.

The real question is if you have a moderate U.S. senator, who voted with Obama 62 percent of the time, and voted with the senate 'Gang of 8' in granting amnesty to illegal aliens is that real conservative leadership? If this is the idea of trust, that embraces holding hands with other moderate GOP senators and democrat liberals, and then what is the difference between them and a democrat, besides the obvious: letter R or letter D?

This cannot be the choice that America is left with. This cannot be the destiny which saddles your kids, yours grandkids and the next generation of Americans with. No, America's conservative voters have gone to the election booth, which is the great bank depository of electoral hope, time and time again. Instead, each time these RINO officials have given conservative voters a bad electoral check, which has been returned clearly stamped: "Insufficient funds!!"

Now is the time to firmly grasp the meaning and the power of Ronald Reagan's 'Bold Colors' Conservatism and understand that 2014 is not the end but the beginning. "Reagan was clear in stating, "I don 't know about you, but I am impatient with those Republicans who after the last election rushed into print saying, 'We must broaden the base of our party' – when what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents. ... Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?"

Of course you have seen the pastel colored actions of local Republicans officials from your governors down to your county or local officials. In each and every instance you can feel the crumbling of American traditional values and principles. This has resulted in a Tsunami of millions of illegal aliens invading the nation. The erosion of the nation's biblical principles and heritage combined with a national educational Common Core tyranny that indoctrinates your children is the result of an America of pastels. This has become the new normalcy which lends itself to giving in and giving up to an over reaching Obamanism.

Yet, there is hope as Ronald Reagan had hope for an America that does not say die. There are conservative patriots who understand that Reagan and his philosophy of bold colors was best displayed and delivered through Reaganism Reaganomics. His election over the liberalism of Jimmy Carter painted a new direction for America.

Fitting into that very same conservative mold is conservative patriot Tennessean Melanie Tipton. She has viewed the Alexander pastel colored leadership and has instead chosen the vivid bold colors of Reaganomic conservatism. This is clearly demonstrated in the award winning sportscaster's upcoming major new movie documentary "Melanie's Journey Through Chattanoogaville" that The Conservative Campaign Committee / 1 Million People to Defeat Barack Obama is sponsoring.

Tipton's "Fighting Against Obama's War On Capitalism" documentary promo which has gone viral with over a quarter of a million views, has no pastel colors presented, Instead it shows how Reaganomics can succeed with no excuses and no blame, and just plain old hard work, determination and conservative pro growth private sector enabled policies. This mega reaction reflected a hunger for Reaganism Reaganomics that is transformative and has proven to work! Bold colored conservatism shown through and through!

America has the best opportunity to return to the bold colors of Reagan conservatism and each voter has the ability to exercise that electoral power in their town and right now in 2014. With Reagan's bold colors approach, a conservative can and will show that America is not closed for repairs, but is open for business.

Reagan reminded us, "If we fail to keep our rendezvous with destiny or, as John Winthrop said in 1630, 'Deal falsely with our God,' we shall be made "a story and byword throughout the world." Straighten the current crooked pathway and help to restore it foundation. This must be the nation's destiny. This is your destiny. You are one of us!
