Embed America: Ask Roswell, NM

By John Sepulvado and Jonathan Binder, CNN

Roswell, New Mexico (CNN) – As Election Day gets closer, many voters across the country are asking, “Who are you voting for?” But in Roswell, New Mexico, the question on most people’s minds is, “Do you believe?”

Roswell has become the epicenter of believers in extraterrestrial life after a mysterious object crashed just outside the town in July 1947. Many people are convinced it was an alien spaceship.

Extraterrestrials aside, politics is still a topic that brings people back to earth in Roswell. Like Mark Briscoe, the library director at the International UFO Museum. He believes in life on other planets. Briscoe is also a registered Republican. But, he will be voting for President Obama he says, because no matter what political party a president hails from, Briscoe says presidents need eight years to get anything significant done.

[1:03] “I don’t think any one person can make that big of a change in four years. I don’t believe a Republican can. I don’t believe a Democrat or an Independent can. So I think we are obligated to last a full eight years. Let’s see what the man can do.”

    Minorities being victimized again. They were victimized during the mortgage crisis ( just look at the fine imposed against Wells Fargo) and now that they are forced to rent, victimized again....White Corporate America is evil.
