Granted, the name Conservative was given to the party for a reason; however, the Republican Party’s alienation of moderates and independents, as well as modern societal values, will not further them in the polls or in “conserving” their principles. What the Grand Old Party (GOP) needs is a broader political perspective and a more positive platform presence....   [tags: negative politics, Republican party]

The European Union Has No Grand Strategy

- A profusion of scholarly works and articles regret that the European Union does not develop a grand strategy and militate to confer an enhanced military dimension on the EU. These views imply that the European Union has no grand strategy or has an inadequate one. However, this conclusion does not fit with all existing conceptions regarding grand strategy.
