I agree with you for the most part, but I'm not sure the answer lies in voting for someone to expose a coverup. Although I agree that a two-party
system has significant flaws..
It is not for "the gov't" to tell us. It is for us to want to know. Part of the reason folks don't want to know is because they flat out feel
it's a waste of time. The subject is so ridiculed that no one wants to touch it.
Most of my friends either laugh at the topic or just don't know alot about it... usually it's kind of a mix of those two things. As soon as I
remind them how many people have seen UFOs, and the backgrounds of these people (gov't officials, military pilots, commercial pilots, presidents,
scientists, medical doctors), and that they have nothing to gain from sharing their stories (only credibility to lose) you can see the cogs turning in
their heads! Then remind them just how big reality is and how much we don't understand about it... you'll find them falling silent (from my
I'm not advocating harrassing your friends and pushing the UFO subject upon them against their will. But perhaps bringing it into the spotlight via
some political dicussion (i.e. vote for Ron Paul because he will expose gov't knowledge of UFOs) like you said Santa.
We aren't going to convince a huge chunk of the population overnight. But I think TEAM ATS made a great point: People look to the MSM for facts and
when the MSM snickers at the UFO subject matter, the public just parrots them.
The first order of business is gradually getting people to take the subject more seriously. Forget about Roswell. Focus on things people can't
deny. Leave a book lying on your coffee table and when your friends laugh, tell them UFOs are serious business and challenge them to read the book.
In order to beat their psychological block you have to think in psychological terms. Nobody likes to back down to a challenge. Challenge them to
read a book and lone it to them. Forget about conspiracies. Telling someone "the gov't is covering it up" is the same thing as a religious person
trying to convince an agnostic by telling them "God works in mysterious ways." Stick to logic and don't be discouraged by slow progress.
