Proposed Ufo Ballot Initiative:
We, the voting citizens of the state of Arizona [and,
eventually, of other similarly empowered states], do hereby
direct this state's legislature to issue, forthwith in its
customary manner, an OFFICIAL PROCLAMATION, the wording of which
shall be: "It is hereby proclaimed that the year 2000 be
observed as the Year of UFO Awareness. Because of the federal
government's failure to be officially forthcoming about
Unidentified Flying Objects, the public remains ill-informed and
confused on a matter of potentially great consequence. We
therefore urge the U.S. Congress to expeditiously convene open,
comprehensive hearings in which government personnel (military,
civilian-contract, and agency employees -- active and retired)
are permitted to present sworn testimony regarding their
personal knowledge of any UFO-related evidence, to be given
under immunity by waiver of any applicable security oath or
agreement of nondisclosure. This proclamation acknowledges the
following facts: (1) The weight of the cumulative evidence --
e.g., eyewitness, electronic-detection, photographic,
documentary -- overwhelmingly supports the conclusion of a
majority of Americans that some of the reported UFOs represent
somebody else's spacecraft; (2) the federal government's
handling of the UFO issue has contributed to the public cynicism
toward, and general mistrust of, government -- a development
injurious to our republic; (3) This initial year of the third
millennium affords us a renewed opportunity to explore, assess,
and convey every facet of UFO reality." For more information
