I’ve frequently said on this blog that our fight against HOA abuse is not a liberal/conservative fight, or a Republican/Democrat fight. It’s a fight by any patriot who believes our Constitution is a document worthy of the utmost respect. So if I tip my hat here to a performer at the 1982 convention of People For The American Way, I am not endorsing the organization.
I do think the performance by Robin Williams should be watched by everyone, especially in view of the vulgar meanness of many HOAs toward homeowners who want to display the American flag. In the video linked below, Williams takes the stage to become The American Flag and shows once again the comic genius that we all will miss.
As you can see, the real estate industry PACs support BOTH parties.
You are so right that this is not a liberal/conservative issue. This is simply an issue of freedom and due process.
HOAs need their authority severely limited. It is becoming a requirement to be controlled by an HOA to even purchase a home in newer cities. Many people are not buying into an HOA community by choice. They are buying into it, because that is all that is available to them. It’s either get stuck with an HOA or rent.
And even many rentals are often condominiums or detached or attached HOA homes.
