This button is meant as a humorous social commentary against the United States Republican party. The Republican Party, or Grand Old Party (GOP), is one of the two major political parties within the United States of America. Beginning in the Northern states, the party preserved the Union and promoted the abolishment of slavery and provided equal rights to all men. Throughout the 20th and into the 21st centuries, however, the Republican Party has gradually become associated with a much more socially conservative agenda than it was originally founded upon.
