The Republican Party (also called the GOP, for “Grand Old Party”) is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, along with the Democratic Party. Founded by anti-slavery activists in 1854, it dominated politics nationally for most of the period from 1860 to 1932. There have been 18 Republican presidents, the most recent being George W. Bush. Currently the party’s platform generally reflects American conservatism in the U.S. political spectrum. [ Wikipedia → ]
