What does GOP stand for in terms of the Republican Party?
"GOP" stands for "Grand Old Party," the nickname of the Republican party. According to the GOP website, "GOP" originally stood for "Gallant Old Party." The first Republican president was Abraham Lincoln. After the Civil War, the upstart Republicans were perceived as the party that won the war. The Republicans who were firmly fixed into the Federal Government were ironically dubbed the "Gallant Old Party," which soon became known as the "Grand Old Party," which was then shortened to the "GOP."
Asked in Republican Party
What are GOP policies?
If the GOP stand for Grand old party and refers to the Republican party, then I would say GOP Politics are keeping the Rich, rich and keeping the poor, poor. ============= GOP, in general, likes to have smaller government, but it does favor larger defense department. However, when asked which government spending specifically to cut, it's often difficult to get a clear answer from GOP candidates. Medicare and Social Security are the 2 of the many large government spending ( and getting more expensive) that were started by Democrats, but no GOP in their right mind would suggest cutting those. GOP also favors lower tax for all, but especially corporations. The goal is to have successful corporations passing wealth down the chain to their workers. Of course, this more often lead to very wealthy upper leaderships in the corporations. The GOP tends to be conservative on social issues like gay marriage or abortions, but very liberal on guns ownerships.

Asked in Law & Legal Issues, Donald Trump
Will Donald trump be impeached?
Although there are folks wanting to impeach President Trump because he won the election, it is not likely as long as the House is under GOP control. If the GOP determines that Donald Trump has performed an impeachable offense, they will turn on him like a snake. Unlike Democrats, the GOP appears not to blindly support the leader of their party. ============== Donald trump will be impeached if we want him to be.
