For those of you fed up with partisan politics, the good people of Denver will be voting on an issue that bypasses party lines: Whether or not to create a city commission to monitor extraterrestrial affairs.
If I lived in Denver, I’d vote "Hell, yes!" For one thing, I suspect it would make government meetings so much more interesting that perhaps more people would be drawn into participating in our democracy, which, in my opinion, needs some rational players. For another, I’m a big fan of openness and transparency, so I’d like to see the evidence, if it exists.
To boot, my support, which means nothing, won’t even eat up tax dollars, since the commission, if approved, would be funded with grants, gifts and donations.
Ballet Initiative 300 reads:
The Colorado Independent reports that Denver resident and UFO disclosure advocate Jeff Peckman launched the initiative in April.
There’s a few juicy paragraphs in the section on Legislative intent, which could pose a problem for some voters. It states that the people of Denver declare that there is “credible evidence” from “official government documents” and “whistle-blowers formerly working for the U.S. Government and government contractors” that confirm the presence of extraterrestrials and their vehicles; and that U.S. presidents beginning with Franklin Roosevelt have known about the evidence.
Considering that this “evidence” if it exists, is classified, I’m not sure how the citizens of Denver can unequivocally state this as fact. There’s lots more, so if you grow weary of the pundits and the polls, have a read.
