Additional Information: 

This button was manufactured by a group expressing their opposition to the reelection campaign of Republican President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Reagan won the 1980 presidential election in a landslide against incumbent president Jimmy Carter, and went on to win the 1984 election with his two-time running mate George H.W Bush. A former film star and governor of California, Reagan made his political stance clear in his 1981 inaugural address with his statement, "government is not the solution to our problems: government is the problem." Key policies of the Reagan years include massive tax cuts, large withdraws of government oversight and regulation, an increase in military spending, and the escalation of the Cold War.
