In the decades after the nuclear devastation of Columbus, the Homeland Party became the natural party of government in the United States.
Here's how it all happened...
INALIENABLE RIGHT TO SECURITY IN THE HOMELAND
The Homeland Part was formed by a breakaway from the Republican Party, and were comprised of people who believed, in the wake of Columbus, that the security of the United States was paramount and should take priority over the original United States Constitution.
The Democratic Party withered away in the years after Columbus, and the two parties dominating U.S. politics became the Republican and the Homeland parties.
The fundamental difference between the two parties was the relative emphasis on the dynamic between homeland security and the constitution. The Republican Party had believed that homeland security should be established by making specific amendments to the Constitution.
The Homeland Party, on the other hand, believed that a new Homeland Security Bill of Rights should be instituted that took priority over the original Constitution, and that the Supreme Court should be charged with interpreting legal issues with that new set of priorities.
The underlying premise of the new Bill of Rights was that the citizens of the United States had an inalienable right to security in their homeland, and that this right superseded all the other rights and freedoms enshrined in the original Constitution.
About ten years after Columbus, a Homeland Party president was elected to power for the first time. It took another twenty years before the party succeeded in changing the constitution of the United States, but they finally achieved their goal.
