When have we culturally "arrived"?

In any movement, there is always a moment when one should be able to say that we as a culture have arrived at the end and equality is achieved. This goes for everything from women's rights, minority rights and also rights of the LGBT community. When does such a movement for equality say mission accomplished?

Moderation to throw off political servitude you just have to step outside political parties.

On any given issue act on the facts alone..and support what is right on those issues.

Look at things in a benefit/loss manner.

Thats a simple way of putting it.

For many a decision on an issue isn't based on the facts of the issue but on which way their chosen party is leaning on the issue.

And vested interests of a way of swaying which way a party leans if you know what I mean.

Someone free of political servitude would be outside the influence of such things.

I could vote but there's few who have what I want in a candidate.

You know voting and building something have a lot in common. You either build something out of the proper materials using the proper methods or you may end up with junk.

Building/voting just with the things you do have not what you want...is ok but don't expect what you built to last or be reliable.

Simple as that.

I want to see progress. Progress won't happen with the current "tools" and "materials" we are using.

If you want to half-a55 the job continue to vote for do nothing lackies.

Accepting what is laid out in front of you is a bid part of the problem.

Accept mediocrity and guess what? Thats what you get!

Now a question Bigfoot,.. "How do the people throw off their political servitude"?

It may sound odd but what am I to do when everyone around me is going one way..the way I don't feel is right?

A person like me has two choices. Go with the flow. Not my style. Or step out of the bumrush and tend to my own concerns while everyone else makes a mess of things. Which is what I am doing by refusing to take part in the clown show that people call voting.

Bigfoot: Having "never voted one single time", is an odd way to affect the changes you seem to feel this country needs.

Also I've never voted one single time because I fully realize that its all a big game of being placated and then throwing your support behind those that told you what you wanted to hear.

Its only a matter of time before this country crumbles under the weight of its stupidity.

There's a lot of good in this nation but its almost outweighed by the bad.

Thats why we see less and less progress being made.

I dont see things getting better until the people throw off their political servitude and let rational thought be the cornerstone of their decision making process rather than political necessity.

I find it intellectually hindering to support any kind of political party. The inflexibility one takes on when supporting a political party honestly does no good.

Because as we have seen from both parties in particular the Republicans is that they will go against something they supported if the other side agrees with it...just out of political spite.

So if you are a staunch Democrat or Republican pat yourself on the back...you are part of the reason the political system is so jacked up in this country.

I just can not figure out how people can be so stupid to allow themselves to be lead around by political talking heads and the politicians like a bunch of complaint sheep.

Guess what folks the government we have is the government we deserve! Its a direct result of the ineptitude of the people.

Arizona is an odd state. I would be shocked if the Gov didn't veto it because if they don't the Supreme Court would eventually do it for them.

Kendall78...your last sentence also applies to those that, in reality, only think they are "open-minded". let their self-image give themselves solice.

Posted 532 days ago.

Kendall78

There are those that will never be open minded to other people's beliefs. They will always be threatened by those that are different.

fred...allow me the opportunity to clarify. first..i did not mean christians but americans. you put the wrong spin on my intent. the President assigned religion to peace in a country. since islam seems to be the predominant religion in the middle-east and eastern africa, i found it rather perplexing that the religion in that region does not seem to foster peace within the country by it's religious factions and people in which it resides. i compared the predominance of the koran to the bible in the united states. is that a bit clearer?

@Fred- of course :) But when would you say we have arrived? Obviously one can't have a all the way or no way perspective because there will always be those that do not like others for color or creed.
