No thank you. I am opposed to all invasion of my homeland
No matter how intelligent you may think they are.
Kind of makes me think this is what an Iraqi would have said in 2003.
I guess smart don't make right any more than 'might makes right'.
It's sad so many think we need outside help to make our world livable.
If it took a father figure from the stars to do this, I would be sad we couldn't be bothered to save ourselves. But some higher tech would indeed make these goals easier.
.......... Twenty-six years ago, America’s 40th president brought science fiction to the same podium.
During a speech before the United Nations in 1987, President Ronald Reagan spoke longingly for the world unity that would happen if aliens invaded Earth.
“Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”
“Ronald Reagan, wishing an alien invasion on Earth because of the kumbaya effect it would have on relations among nations,” said Rachel Maddow on her show Monday night. “One of the truly weirdest things he ever said in public.”
One night in 1974, from a Cessna Citation aircraft, one of America's most famous citizens saw a UFO.
There were four persons aboard the plane: pilot Bill Paynter, two security guards, and the governor of California, Ronald Reagan. As the airplane approached Bakersfield, California, the passengers called Paynter's attention to a strange object to their rear. "It appeared to be several hundred yards away," Paynter recalled. "It was a fairly steady light until it began to accelerate. Then it appeared to elongate. Then the light took off. It went up at a 45-degree angle-at a high rate of speed. Everyone on the plane was surprised. . . . The UFO went from a normal cruise speed to a fantastic speed instantly. If you give an airplane power, it will accelerate-but not like a hot rod, and that's what this was like."
A week later Reagan recounted the sighting to Norman C. Miller, then Washington bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal. Reagan told Miller, "We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light. We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens." When Miller expressed some doubt, a "look of horror came over [Reagan]. It suddenly dawned on him . . . that he was talking to a reporter." Immediately afterward, according to Miller, Reagan "clammed up."
Reagan has not discussed the incident publicly since.
How would you feel about an advanced and yet apparently friendly race of aliens taking over and setting humanity into a more positive and productive direction. Would you go along if you felt you could trust them OR would you rebel on general principles, resenting the aliens for giving you an intelligent direction and purpose? Would you say we are what we are and don't want anyone else to interfere with us?

If they were like, listen guys we have been here before, we share similar history albeit we were around the stage you were 4,000 years ago, this is what we did and how we turned out so cool, check out this holographic powerpoint presentation that will be transmitted directly in your brain which you can eat afterwards to see more about your potential paths of development, here are some free energy devices, we will do a basic scan real quick and just a moment....beep... ok we have a mapping of all humans that are causing earth to be a bad place and we suggest terminating them so their genetic qualities cannot reproduce mmkay, here are some spaceships so you can send some crews out to the inter galactic federation hub where the party is always popping off, 25/8 793 days a mondrodian, congratulations on having intelligence, neat stuff, you might want to consider becoming robots, or might want to stick with the squishy route and see where that takes you, alright, later bros. WE will be back in 100 moon cycles to check on your progress, lets see if you are big boys and girls enough to get the pot stirred yourself.edit on 24-2-2014 by ImaFungi because: (no reason given)
