Did you know that there is a web site where you, my fellow Americans, can create or sign a White House petition? What a wonderful demonstration of our Democracy in action!
I’m not telling you this because I want to crow about the USA, although it is another validation of my decision to become an American. I’m telling you because there’s a petition to sign.
The petition is about the extraterrestrial vehicle crash near Roswell, NM in 1947. Now there are plenty of UFO nuts out there, but I am not one of them. Much as I want to believe ET is watching us, the dimensions of space-time are so immense that the probability of our intercepting a signal from ET are depressingly low. So I have always been a UFO skeptic. Until now.
I came across the petition while researching Exopolitics for a “reality-grounded” science fiction novel I am working on. Here’s a page of quotations from reputable sources to whet your interest. There’s too much meat to this for even a skeptic like me to ignore it, so I decided to use my blog to enlist the power of the internet and social media to help get those 25,000 signatures. Please, visit the White House petition site and SIGN THIS PETITION. We’ve only got until OCTOBER 10th, by the way.
You will have to set up a login for yourself to do so. Don’t let that deter you. You want to know, right? We all want to know, and We The People are entitled to know. This stuff is too important to be kept secret, and now they have given us a way to find out. If we get 25,000 signatures they will be obligated to respond.
Once you have that login, it will be easy for you to participate in other petitions or submit your own. No matter who you support for President, one thing is certain. The fate of our planet and our nation depend increasingly on how well our government functions (scary thought). Get involved, empower yourself, tweet this post, SIGN THE PETITION by October 10th!
