Well my friend, if you'll stop posting, we will be one post closer to letting this thread die a natural death.
It promotes Canadian nationalism, monetary reform, and electoral reform and opposes globalization and free trade agreements.
The current CAP leadership has endorsed the theory that the United States government had prior knowledge of the September 11 attacks and did nothing to stop the attack, in order to create an excuse to enact Project for the New American Century document Rebuilding America's Defenses.
CAP also argues for the abrogation of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and opposes current government initiatives leading to the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), and what it sees as integration with the United States and Mexico into a North American Union.
At its 2006 convention, CAP passed a motion calling for a Royal Commission to investigate the September 11 attacks and Canada's participation in Afghanistan. CAP believes that the truth of what really happened on September 11, 2001 has not been told, however, Canadians have been subject to anti-terrorism laws and security agreements, such as Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), that have compromised Canadian sovereignty and civil rights.

How scared are we to go to the expense of military defense positions on the moon for alien invasions? I am remembering "Bowling for Columbine" and the fear built by our media.
Frankly, I don't see a threat of significance. If these aliens have been visiting us for thousands of years, and haven't eaten us yet, what's the problem?
I like the idea of world peace, focusing on developing the planet for habitability, caring for the needy, etc. I am surprised how much money comes out of the government to save the financial sector, when very little comes out to save the earth.
We're hurting here, and we need to fix here first. Maybe the aliens have some good ideas on how to fix it here.
OR maybe they put us here to kill off all the big, disgusting, threatening things that have evolved here (like dinosaurs), so we could make it a nice and habitable place for them later. We do the dirty work.
I've always thought it was more of a process of extinction than of evolution. The planet has gone from 70 phyla to 30. Out of place artifacts indicate we may have been here killing off those bad dudes for millions of years. If it looks habitable to those little grey guys now, maybe the want their zoo back.

My first post on ATS, so forgive me if I post about something that has been covered elsewhere, but;
Reading through that NASA calendar, posted earlier, I came across this snippet-
one session on the process of turning the new Commercial Space Transportation Law into practical regulations; another session on the new spaceports
What law? passed by whom? when? what the heck is that all about
We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an Act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity...Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do."

I understand and appreciate what you have to say before you said this.
Really I think it would take more than a crew of astronauts and engineers (what 100 people at most) to put together manned 'operations thorughout our solar system and beyond.' It would littrally take thousands of people to do this. Chances are it would have gotten out. And where exactly would they do this kind of stuff? New Mexico? Siberia? Too many people would look out for space shuttles blasting off without any notice from the governments of the world. And just as the New World was the peak of civilization a few hundred years ago this New Frontier would be the peak of today's civilization and it would be exposed to the public.
Not saying its impossible but realisticly something would have given in by now to prove this.
