UFOs and the 2008 Presidential Election

From UFOs in the 2008 Presidential Election

As of yet UFOs have not become a part of the 2008 U.S. presidential election. Issues still centre on the war in Iraq, and domestic issues that affect daily well being.

Well, d'uh.

Honestly - you try and get folks to take the UFO phenomenon seriously, and then you run into stuff like this. Sure, I have more than a passing interest in UFOs (I have more than a passing interest in a lot of subjects), and think they're worthy of serious scientific study, but compared with Iraq (or foreign policy in general), or global warming / the environment, or the economy, or health care - probably the "big four" topics in the next US election - does anybody really think UFOs rate a mention?

I don't. I would rate human space exploration higher than UFOs - especially if you were to confront a candidate with the "when are you going to release / tell The Truth about the Cosmic Watergate" question, as opposed to a more sensible question, such as"would you commit to government-funded scientific study of unidentified aerial phenomena?"

Who knows? Ask that question, and you might even get a yes from a candidate who doesn't understand that UAP is simply a more precise, accurate and scientific way of saying UFO.

In the meantime, I'm just guessing that Mitt Romney, and John Edwards, and even Governor Richardson have better things to do than answer questions from exopolitical believers about a grand conspiracy to cover up the truth about the "alien agenda".

At least I hope they do.

It would be interesting to ask that question to Hillary. At least we do know his husband looked briefly into it during his term.

Another interesting question to the candidates would be about how they would address the ever increasing budgets in so-called "Black Ops" projects funded by the Pentagon, against the need to better health care programs and other more pressing matters.
