The idea of a Christmas party is something many Americans have embraced, but that sentiment is being tested.
The holiday season has come to define the country and, for many, its political future.
The holiday season also marks the start of an intense debate about whether to get serious about the challenges facing American families.
The country is coming to terms with its biggest political divide in decades, and the president is facing growing pressure to lead on economic issues like climate change, immigration and gun control.
“The question is: Can we get it right?” asked Jonathan Bernstein, a professor of political science at George Mason University and author of the new book “The Christmas Party Idea: How the Right Political Parties Have Built a Winning Culture.”
“This is the time when people say, ‘I know what I want for my Christmas party, and I’m not going to change my mind about that,'” he said.
“So we have to find out how to build on what is already a winning culture.
And it’s a culture that has been around for years.”
While many people say they have “been there, done that,” the concept of a party for the holidays has its roots in a party in the 19th century that was intended to celebrate the birth of a new country, the book said.
Party on, party on: How Republicans, Democrats and Independents Have Built A Winning Culture.
The party, called the “federal holiday party,” was designed to celebrate holidays, like Christmas, with feasting, music and other festivities, but the idea also drew on a culture of tradition that had a strong attachment to tradition.
As a result, many Americans are embracing the idea of holiday parties that celebrate the traditions of the old and the new, the authors said.
That means Republicans are embracing a party of Republicans.
“They want to embrace it as a party, but they also are trying to bring in elements of the party of the future,” Bernstein said.
The new book, which focuses on the Republican Party’s relationship with the state, looks at the party’s history in the statehouses across the country, and finds it has a strong affinity with the idea that the party should be an inclusive party, not just a white nationalist party.
For example, the party has had strong support from black Republicans for many decades, Bernstein said, even as the party continues to face a backlash from black voters.
One example is the party in Georgia, which recently voted to remove a Confederate flag from a statehouse in downtown Atlanta.
Republicans have also fought against a measure that would have required transgender people to use public bathrooms matching their gender identity.
Republicans have also had strong backing from the religious right, Bernstein found.
“That’s a huge part of the Republican party that is also in the religious wing of the GOP,” he said, adding that the Religious Right has pushed to repeal the Affordable Care Act and to defund Planned Parenthood.
“So that is really an example of how they see the party.”
The authors also found that the Republican base in some states is embracing the party as a way to show that the GOP is a party that reflects the values of the voters who elected them.
A recent poll found that 54 percent of Republicans think the party needs to change its identity and that they do not support party leaders who “hide behind the words of party leaders to deny the values and values of their base.”
And when they are asked about whether or not they support the idea, the answer is overwhelmingly yes, Bernstein noted.
The authors said the party must change the way it presents itself to voters, and that it must not shy away from the reality that there are some Republicans who are anti-gay and some who are not.
But Republicans must also embrace their core values, the author said, including a strong emphasis on traditional values like marriage and family.
“We need to stop pretending that the values we want to put forward on the ballot in 2018 are a set of ideological positions,” Bernstein told The Hill.
“There are real differences among people that we need to get beyond those ideological differences.”
And then we need a party whose members believe in these values, and whose members respect them.
