On stopping HOA bullies and rediscovering lost values

Excerpts of guest blogs by George Staropoli on Ward Lucas’ blog, Neighbors at War!

 

Rediscovering Values

For a society, a community, to function in an orderly manner there must be not only rules, but a firm belief in the need to enforce just and fair rules and laws. Political philosophy says that where laws are unjust and unfair, then the democratic government is not legitimate, cause the reason for forming a social contract and surrendering freedoms is just that.

On Stopping Bullies

Proposed HOA reforms must include necessary and sufficient detriments to put an end to HOA bullying and abuse. People do not become angels when they become a board member, like our astute, politically savvy legislatures would like you to believe.

 If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.  James Madison, The Federalist Papers, # 51.

  2. Sociopaths gravitate towards these positions. This needs to stop and a movement developed that achieves this.

    • Yes, agree with you but how do we actually stop these sociopaths from getting voted on as board of director members? These ego manics get together as a quorum and cheat and bully their fellow homeowners with no over sight but RECALL. RECALL is very difficult. Most homeowners just don’t want to get involved in running their own government let alone sign a petition and help personally fund a RECALL by hiring out side attorneys. HOA can be a nightmare for those unsuspecting homeowners who have no clue to the power they give their elected officials.

  3. Property Values: a false idol.

  4. The angels among us start with you, George Staropoli! We need 10,000,000 more of you and this battle to right the wrongs that HOAs have tormented us with will be over.

    There is power in numbers and we are building those with every passing day and every HOA nightmare story exposed. Fortunately, we have Ward Lucas and Shu Bartholomew with great exposure on a website and radio show, too.

    The good will prevail when the evil is outnumbered!

    Thank you, George for ALL you do!

  5. Not many angels running HOA government. It’s very difficult for the angels to infiltrate these devilish HOA dictatorships. Please keep up your great work to create laws to attempt to eliminate these devils.
