    Do you believe that the government would inform the people if they knew that we were being visited by extraterrestrials? Or would they keep it a secret. Note that I am not asking whether or not you believe that aliens are in fact visiting the Earth but what you think the government would do.

    If the aliens didn't make it overtly apparent they were alive, it would probably be in the best interest of the powers that be to not tell us. However, I feel contact is sort-of like socialism, if it really comes, in true form, the whole world would change.

    No.  That would probably create a panick in a lot of people.  Also they wouldn't want anyone interfering with them in case someone did something stupid.  They would want to handle it quietly until they were able to establish some kind of trust/bond with them first.

    No they wouldn't, and as much as it pains me to say, they have a good reason not to. I don't think that we are ready to handle news of that magnitude yet.

    No they wouldn't and no they haven't.

    Governments ultimately rule through fear. Democracy is a sham. When aliens finally make their presence so obvious that nobody can deny their reality then governments all over the world will fall. They will no longer be the kid with the biggest stick on the block. We will lose our fear of them and stop listening to all the crap about there being no other way ( we have to bail out the banks and go to war so the rich can get richer etc).

    A great many will also stop believing in god.

    First contact. Bring it on.

       My answer in addition to your question, would also have to be no-the government would not tell the people about being visited by extraterrestrials. Most likely for the reason, that most people fear the unknown. In turn a lot of folks would also most likely start panicking. The government knowing this, would at all costs, want to keep this information out of the civilian's hands. Besides the government has enough issues to worry about already.

    Unequivocally no. The goverments would do everything in their power to keep it from us, just as they seem to lie about everything else, including 'free power' that IS available, they just don't want us to have it. If we were to make free power available, they would stand to lose a hell of a lot of power, money and control over the masses.

    The same applies to Aliens. They could work secretly in the background, on their little schemes with the aliens, using us (the flock)as commodities and bargaining chips. In fact they probably already are, which is one reason the manned space program has slowed so drastically.

    They have built a system whereby we, the flock, have become reliant upon them for literally everything. It wouldn't surprise me if very soon they place restrictions on things like air, water, children etc. We still are not subservient enough for them and right now, they are at their drawing board, creating more concocted stories like 9,11, Roswell, Nuclear weapons etc.

    Aliens are already here and have probably been coming here for centuries, evidence is everywhere in archeological sites, ancient ruins and such.

    The Aliens and the goverment have us right where they want us. In the palm of their hand, feeding on all the propaganda and lies they spread as a means of keeping us in the dark while they work (perhaps alongside aliens) on their new toys.
