Well, it would solve the problem of not seeing visitors from the future. But there'd still be all sorts of issues with it, like whether us finding
aliens means we will or won't get to that point sooner, later, never, who knows.
Anyway, as Gaz said, it's just as likely as travelling really really fast (and then some!). I don't see any reason to say they're not us later on
except for, again as Gaz said, tests by people who know show that they are or aren't human descendants.
There's no reason for them to come and get their men. If someone died on Mars, we wouldn't send a rescue mission right away to collect the body.
And we wouldn't have to deal with a government to boot.
