Naming

The Republican Party is not actually called the "U.S. Republican Party". It's called the "Republican Party". I think the page should be called "Republican Party (United States)", just like we have "Java (programming language)" rather than "Java programming language" (because Java is a programming language, not a language called "Java programming language").

In two weeks time, on the 21 Feburary 2010, I shall move this page (if it hasn't already been moved) unless significant objections to moving it have been raised. –Tom Morris 12:43, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Ridiculousness

Aside from other ironies (along the lines of government-sponsored laisez faire economic policies), doesn't anyone see the ridiculousness of a heading titled "future trends?" Russell D. Jones 00:42, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
