A new billboard featuring a smiling Ronald Reagan and the caption “Remember Real Hope and Change?” has appeared next to a highway in Minnesota as reported by Hot Air. The message is similar to the “Miss Me Yet?” billboard featuring George W. Bush that appeared also in Minnesota earlier this year, but this is definitely an upgrade.
Hope and change were not empty slogans when Reagan was president. Reagan brought hope and change to millions of people throughout the world who were freed from the oppression of communism.
Here is an excerpt from an historic speech President Reagan made to the British Parliament in 1982 where he predicted that communism would be left on the “ash heap of history.” Seven years later the Berlin Wall fell and after two additional years the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. No one would have believed this possible in 1982 – except Ronald Reagan.
