I keep hearing it here and there but ya know....

Ah, ok, thank you for the assistance
Golf, Oil and Prostitutes
Grotesque Old Pricks
This is the sort of behavior that marks you as an idiot. In less than half the time it took to create a new thread to ask this question, you could have googled GOP and found the answer.
Well excuse me for wanting to socialise. And would google have given comedy alternatives?....
I was more than happy to socialize with you, glad you didn't google it!
National Dylsexic Society

What does G.O.O.P. mean?
Grossly Overprejudiced and Overrated People
Depending on which circle you hang in, the meaing can be
Grandiose Obtuse Poopityheads or Generous Obliging Papas or possibly Greedy Ogres Prancing, then again it may be Gallant Old Pals...
...there are other possibilities too.
Please research progressive and eugenics and not on wikipedia. Please look at the Civil rights Act of 1964 and notice that 80% of the GOP voted in favor while only 60% of dems voted for the bill. Please look at which party started share cropping. Please look at what party controlled the mine workers in West Virgina and look at the govonor that order the workers shot down and if he was a dem or rep. Please note the MLK was a member of the GOP. Please note that the only lawsute currently in motion to end DOMA was filed by the Log Cabing Republicans.
Please look at what the GOP has turned into in the past 30 years.
Please look at how the Log Cabin Republicans were treated during the last two presidential election cycles.
That was then and this is now.
Which party created Social Security and Medicare and which party resisted? Also, there are a multitude of DOMA challenges, including one from my home state:
Press Release - Massachusetts Becomes First State to Challenge Legality of DOMA
Yeah, but to quote Bill Maher and Janet Jackson, what have you done for us lately?
You REALLY don't want to make the subject of Civil Rights a divisive, political party issue. There's enough shame to go around to make both sides smell horrible.
Actually when you break the vote down for the Civil Rights Act of 64 by region.........the dems come out better than the repubs.......the 60's were a different time.....it was more a North South thing than a dem repub thing:
The original House version:
Southern Democrats: 7-87 (7%-93%)
Southern Republicans: 0-10 (0%-100%)
Northern Democrats: 145-9 (94%-6%)
Northern Republicans: 138-24 (85%-15%)
The Senate version:
Southern Democrats: 1-20 (5%-95%) (only Senator Ralph Yarborough of Texas voted in favor)
Southern Republicans: 0-1 (0%-100%) (this was Senator John Tower of Texas)
Northern Democrats: 45-1 (98%-2%) (only Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia opposed the measure)
Northern Republicans: 27-5 (84%-16%) (Senators Bourke Hickenlooper of Iowa, Edwin L. Mechem of New Mexico, Milward L. Simpson of Wyoming, and Norris H. Cotton of New Hampshire opposed the measure)
And history repeats itself in that the gop has become a party of the South.
good ol pervs............diaper dave vitter for example
As the Republican party was founded in 1854, and the Democratic in 1792, 'old' relative to what? As it has 55 million members, and the Democratic party 72 million, 'grand' relative to what?
I don't know if I would consider West Virginia, which seceded from Virginia somewhat unconstitutionally, northern. (no state was to be formed out of the territory of another) Likewise former Klan member Bob Byrd.
