Okay, I've made up my mind. The serious study of the UFO phenomenon will survive a run by Paul Hellyer for the Liberal Party leadership on an exopolitical platform. It's survived worse over the years (nothing pops to mind at the moment, but I'm sure there's something).
Accordingly, I am now officially initiating The Other Side of Truth's "Draft Paul Hellyer for Liberal Leader" campaign.
First step - all of you Canadians who are exopolitical supporters must join the Liberal Party, if you're not already members.
Go directly to the Liberal Party's "Join the Liberal Party" webpage - do not pass "go", do not collect $200 (the Liberals will probably give you money once you join, based on past "practice"). Here are the "requirements", which do not include, apparently, the payment of any membership fee:
"Join the Liberal team and help us make our party even better. By becoming a member of the Liberal Party of Canada, you can make your voice heard in developing new policy initiatives and garnering support for the candidates in your community and across the country.
Joining is easy! If you’re a Canadian resident, 14 years or older, and do not belong to another federal political party, simply fill out this form to get started.
The information you provide will be forwarded to your provincial or territorial association. They will contact you directly to welcome you to the party.
We look forward to you becoming part of the Liberal family."
FYI - I would suggest that you don't tell them why you're joining - no need to ruin the... er, surprise. Besides, if Hellyer and the exopols are right, then at least some Liberals are probably "in" on the big alien - government cover-up, so best to keep a low profile until he has enough official members behind him to launch his bid.
Consider yourselves fifth columnists for truth, justice and... well, whatever else you want. But join now - and encourage your friends to join as well. The more the merrier.
It's time to get serious, exopols. Stand up for what you believe in! The Liberal Party of Canada needs you!!
