The party that opposes Horatio Longworth is being called the Isolationist Party. They believe that power over NASA should stay divided among the other members. They want the country to stay "under the radar of global politics". They believe that NASA should stay out of foreign affairs. They are strongly opposed to Longworth's rise to power. The nation's senate has decided to side with this party.
Since NASA has disbanded, the Isolationist party has started to loose members.
