1. Depends

If the repugs thought they could cut a deal for themselves with our new alien overlords, they would sell the rest of us down the river without reservation.

3. Wait, does the question assume we're Republicans or human beings?

I know, I know, my joke dehumanizes Republicans, and that's not really cool, but fuck it, I did it anyway.

5. To me,

the sad thing is that I'm not sure a simple majority would understand the question! I mean, after all, surely there's no way that the friends of "W" and the Repugs would even consider doing anything like that to Amurika, would they?

6. slightly more realistically, what if a bunch of rich arabs bought up key american corporations?

how would we have felt about deepwater horizon if bp had previously sold out to, say, iran?

8. I can't help but think of the movie "They Live" and wonder if republicans of today are really aliens

They have no humanity, nor do they care about planet earth, they are anti science and Mitch McConnell looks like he stepped off the space ship every time I see him, he is so ugly and doesn't look human. Just wondering

11. We wouldn't mobilize to stop them. I know that for sure.

Based on what I have seen and read, even from self-confessed "liberals", they believe working and investing in the companies doing this is fine and dandy. Far from mobilizing, they would be studying the investment return ratios and lauding the benefits of the new ET Mutual Fund.
So, no. No change at all.
