The Republican Party, also commonly called the GOP, is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, the other being 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 first being Abraham Lincoln, serving from 1861 to 1865, and the most recent being George W. Bush, serving from 2001 to 2009. The most recent Republican presidential nominee was former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in 2012. The party's platform is generally based upon American conservatism, in contrast to the Democratic Party, which supports contemporary American liberalism. The Republican Party's platform of conservatism traces its roots to classical liberalism with an emphasis on its economically liberal policies in supporting free markets, limited government, and laissez-faire economics, while supporting socially conservative policies. A significant portion of the Republican base is made up of fiscal conservatives and other free market, pro-capitalism factions.
