     Do hereby adopt and ordain this platform, which we offer for consideration by our nation's citizens.

Interview with Gabriel Green, U.S. Presidential Candidate (1960)

Interviewer: What made you decide to take on this campaign, aside from the other duties of your organisation?

Gabriel Green: Well, I decided as a result of a request from the Space People that I do so. At first I was very reluctant because I felt very humble with being asked to undertake such a responsibility. Frankly, at first, I really didn't feel that I wanted to take up on my shoulders such a tremendous project. But when the Space People talked to me about it, and pointed out that our civilization was doomed unless somebody took the effort, made the effort, and took the action to change the present direction in which mankind is heading that we would not very long have a civilization on this earth. And, like many others, my buddies in the service, I was in the war too, and I was fortunate enough to come back alive, and I feel that I owe something to my buddies, and to those who are yet living, to dedicate my life to attempting to resolve the many problems which mankind is facing now, and as a result of the advanced information with the Space People have over a period of many years have been a party to us, we now have this information in our possession, and I have decided to submit to their request to carry through with this program, to attempt to bring to the American people these solutions so that they may evaluate them for themselves, and decide for themselves whether or not they feel they have merit.
