I agree with the sentiment, however I have several reservations.
For example, I don't believe in Extra-Terrestrial life, it's a certainty. You cannot propose that of the hundreds of billions of galaxies each
containing hundreds of billions of stars there is not just one star with planetoids orbiting at a distance and velocity which would allow for the
development of life. There are lifeforms out there some more advanced and some much less so than ourselves.
As to the government owning up to this - not a chance. Even on the day they land and unequivocally voice their existence to the world the governments
will admit contact for an extremely limited period, a year or 2 at the most, and take credit for 'coaxing' them down to show themselves.
These types of petition have failed time and time again. Disclosure project for example. Their petition contains the names, occupations and clearance
levels of some pretty senior NASA, MoD, USAF, RAF and many many other civil servants who would reasonably be privy to this type of information in
their roles and responsibilities. Did they ever get disclosure? So if this group of intellectual people in the know receive no response to their calls
for disclosure, what makes you think anyone will submit to any evidence we at ATS can provide?
As for protesting, sounds like a plan; if you want to waste your time that is. Protesting changes nothing without action. It's been seen time and
time again - the only time peaceful protesting has worked was when the Venezuelan people demanded (and rightly so) Hugo Chavez' release. But
admitting to ET's just isn't that big a concern for most. Certainly not enough for even 10's of thousands to protest and see a result. In fact,
you'd be hard pressed to find even a few hundred.
OK so out with the negative. The most likely way this letter will work is if it's:
a) re-written in a short, concise executive summary.
b) supported by several levels of as yet undisputed evidence.
c) sent NOT only to the president, but to every parliament across the globe - you have to hedge your bet's with things like this i.e. the Peruvian
government are more likely to admit to ET visitation than the US.
I'm with you, and I wish you all the best I just have seen this question raised and quashed so many times before that it's literally unthinkable
that you would receive any kind of response.
I'll gladly help to write on behalf of the community, or offer any kind of time to research I can - I say it seems a waste of time, but time's all I
have right now, so feel free to call on me, and sorry to sound so negative.
