This has been making it's rounds on the internet. While not completely historically accurate, looking at the comments, it seems even kids born in the 90's miss Reagan. There are enough touches to this picture that remind me of the 80's (see the DARE sticker?).

While we did win the military and economic portion of the Cold War, we're still fighting the Commie/Marxist ground war since they made hugh beachheads into our unions, pseudo-intellectual crowd, (atheists, black liberation theology, “modern” theology, colleges and universities, schools, etc.), envirowackos, feminist, Dim party, etc. We've got to win this final chapter of the war on all fronts and drive a stake through its heart.

Specifically, its the 48-star flag that is histoically inaccurate. The rest is pretty much an authentic depiction of Reagan’s famous “Ride Into Moscow” that left most of the Kremlin in ruins, and forced Gorbachov to kneel before Reagan and also agree to wear a pinafore dress in public thereafter.

("War is less costly than servitude, the choice is always between Verdun and Dachau." Jean Dutourd)
As a poet at heart, I was hoping to find real symbolism in this. It's cool imagery but that's all.
Looking at the original source you linked, shows that whoever produced this is woefully ignorant of history.
Ignorance on the left or right is troubling.
Illustrating this ignorance is the Soviet or Chicom RPG slung over Ron's shoulder!! (Kind of like Russian warships and Turkish fighter planes in an American political convention!)
The cold war was won by Zerox machines smuggled into Russia and operated by freedom loving people in the basements of Moscow.
