Let me give you a basic summery of what would happen.

If we're trying to be honest, all the IN fleet would have to do is choose one, or a couple of cities and blow it off the globe. Allow that to sink in for a bit and then make the ultimatum. If we lost, say, London, Beijing, New York, Moscow and, say, Paris, then who would ever say yes to fighting? There might be a few nutters, but you'd not get a proper military to go into a warzone against such a foe. Even if the government gave the order, you're looking at mass mutinies as the soldiers decide an uncertainfate is better than certain death.

For those that think we'd put up a decent fight, it really all depends on who the Imperium sends. IG sure, we'd probably be able to take out a fair few of them before we are defeated. The problem there is, that's what they're there for. If the Imperium bothers to send a full company of terminators plus all their regular support ie predator tanks, thunderhawks etc. we'd be fucked pretty quickly.
And for those who think that the Orks are a benchmark to compare our own tech with, newsflash, Ork tech is actually superior to Imperial tech in many aspects. Also, they have the psychic waaagh field which gives them a big advantage. Just because they believe it's possible, Orks can increase the speed of their vehicles simply by giving it a new red paint job. Not something to take lighly. In fact, I'd be willing to say that if a fairly decent sized Waaagh landed on Earth that we'd also be wiped out pretty quickly. But that's a debate for another thread.

|Brother Emund||I don't think the Imperium would even bother to give the non-tainted citizens the option to join them. They would just leave them with the others and Annihilate them all from space. However, I think that the people of Earth, after a wee period of defiance, would bow to their new masters and live in relative harmony. There would be some resistance, as there always is. But can you imagine the Taliban being hunted down by the IG, or even worse, totally sense-of-humour-free Astarte’s!|

We'd introduce Subway to them and they'd leave us be
Jokes aside though, We'd "Officially" accept the Imperium, however, there obviously would still be the hassle of religion, skitsofrenics going mad about an alien invasion, and most likely rioting on the streets.
The response from the governments would be, look what they have to offer, blah blah blah, greater good. TBH, they'd just be pressured into joining from the threat of rebellion, or annihilation, or both.
If it came to the Imperium saying, "Look, you're kind of tainted, so we'll take the non-tainted civilians along with us, and blow you up." Then all hell would break loose, people would be queuing to be taint checked by Librarians, those who are successful get to go with them. Everyone else doesn't. There'd be riots, looting, everything imaginable, and a strike at the invaders, which would mean they leave quicker.
My other scenario is similar, the Imperium gives the planet the choice of joining. If it says no then all of those who want to go with the Imperium board their ships and go along with the, the planet again goes into riot before being blown up.
