The study of national and state priorities in the field of foreign policy is largely based on an analysis of the effectiveness of decision-making within the existing system of state power. Historically, the political instability was a major cause of the crisis, leading to change of the balance of countries opposing each other in the international arena. Overcoming the crisis of foreign policy is an indicator of the sustainability and viability of the civilization.
We can say that the United States successfully implementing political system while maintaining the phenomenal way in-system stability and efficiency. The success of the system is ensured by the existence of balance between the three branches of government: legislative, executive and judiciary that provide clear functioning mechanism. In foreign policy, this balance is achieved by a consensus of the political rivalry between the Congress and the presidential administration. Thus, the formation of foreign policy of the United States does not take place on the basis of ideological imperatives and real political competition, taking into account the position of the maximum number of interested parties. Politicians think and act in terms of interest defined in terms of power.
I.Kristol examines the factors that have contributed to the growth of American power, and later the specifics of its manifestation. According to the author benevolent global hegemony of the United States should be based on increasing the military budget for the purification of the foreign policy of the unfounded illusions, focused on the diplomatic activities, supporting allies and punish the (potential) opponents (Kristol).
Also the author observes that religion miraculously did not constraining element in the development of the political system (as was the case in the countries of the Old World). On the contrary: the confessional pluralism is gradually transformed into a political pluralism. Faith became fully determinant mentality of Americans, including those in the political sphere. It can be seen that originated before the emergence of an independent political system, religious organizations continue to have a significant, albeit indirect, impact on the entire political process, actively interacting with the community and at the present stage of its development. Evolution of religious organizations is the formation of a certain "balance of power" in which none of the churches can not get total domination in the dissemination of its values in the society, which also determines the specific role of religious organizations in the political process. America - officially a Christian country. American society was built on religious principles. Therefore, the main aim of the Constitution was the greatest possible restriction of possible arbitrariness of the individual or group of people. All other objectives are based on the Constitution it is from this point of centering and justified by "the Divine Law."
Religious organizations are actively influence the political decision-making. An important element of the work of the Church remains the spread of certain values and ideological, a particular type of thinking is based on biblical doctrines. In addition, the religion itself plays a significant role in shaping the strategic culture of any country, explaining its position in the global political landscape. The church is also a channel of communication between society and government, expresses needs of society, as well as conducting and interpretation an explanation of any political decisions of government agencies, which indicates the presence of feedback. Despite the abundance of different groups representing the interests in public authorities, the religious activities of churches has a number of features that distinguish them from other lobbying organizations.
American policy is ruled by three ideas: the world as the most preferred basis for relations between the countries; democracy as a way of organizing the most relevant internal political life; the free market as the best means of creating material wealth. These three ideas conquered the world, becoming the world's orthodoxy. US imperial doctrine evolved gradually found expression in political documents and writings, the implementation of the provisions that lead to the satisfaction of ambitions and increasing imperial power (Horwitz). Political ideas of the imperial doctrine contained in the documents differ in their formal status. The US should constantly think about the prospects of its historical evolution, based on the fact that international politics will always be a ruthless battle for dominance.External and internal expansion contributed to the development of the United States advanced industrial nation in the world, which determines the sprawling sphere of economic and political interests. The need for implementation and protection in the colonial division of the world between European empires causes the output of American expansionism outside the continent. The genesis of the United States determined a special eschatological project departing their roots in Protestant theology and modernized education. The proclamation of the highest national values is of particular importance in times of crisis, becoming one of the most effective mechanisms to overcome it. World historical experience out of the crisis shows that it has been successful in those cases where the State has offered to the people mobilizing and consolidating ideological imperatives.
The expansion of the United States was an increase in their influence in the fields of social relations through modern globalization. Globalization has become a form of imperial domination of the United States in the world, providing them with the economic, financial and intellectual resources of the world and put themselves on the success of focus and accountability of the process.
