What if aliens worshiped Ronald Reagan?

What if aliens came to earth and when they got there iit is because Reagan was a God to them. They based their entire economy on Reaganomic's. They had all his movie's dowloaded into their supercomputer's. They have named all their spaceports and alien craft after Reagan.

As a liberal I would be surprised but I could roll with it. If you want to make money their is alot to like about the Trickle Down effect. It wouldn't suprise me if a alien race still used money of some sort. I don't think money will ever disapear from the human race so why would it disapear for the aliens. So why not imbrace a philosphy that is all about taking us much money as you can get your hands on it.

I doubt alien beings who worship Ronald Reagan would be smart enough to build and operate interstellar spacecraft.

Unless Jesus was the Captain...??

They would have to be pretty advanced to even figure out who Reagan was. It means they would have visited this planet in the 80's.

Or they had intercepted transmissions of his movies from the 50's. Like in Contact.

They think he is Ruler of the Monkey People.

Just an antenna. Not nearly as complicated as designing a spaceship that can travel across the galaxy.

They would all have numbers at the end of the name to identify a craft. For example you would have Reagan 1 and Reagan 2 and so forth.

To properly worship them though they would to decipher between Reagan signals and other broadcast going out in space. Plus they would have to have the ability to learn our language.

If aliens worshiped tits, they would be just like the rest of us.

What if aliens worshiped Ronald Reagan?
Then they would call their wives 'mommy,' and I just can't stand that shit.

Re: What if aliens worshiped Ronald Reagan?

Well, since their society would only be 30 years old I doubt they'd have much of a technological base to construct a FTL vessel.

Then again, that would be putting too much thought into a retarded thread so I will just post this:

Why do you asume they would be only 30 years old? They could have been around as long or longer than humans and simply created a new religion based on what they have discovered here on earth.
