Some words of encouragement on this President’s Day.
The task of educating the legislators, the courts, the media and the public as to all the factors inherent in the HOA legal scheme is a dauntless task. Advocates have been doing battle against a fortified adversary with funds that has indoctrinated the many into accepting certain benefits, and instilling fear into the many of dire consequences.
The national lobbying trade group alleges that, if the HOA legal scheme is made to conform and adhere to our American system of government, where individual rights and freedoms come first before the objectives of the “state”, the HOA, all would be lost. This same trade group claims to have an educational mission, yet only instructs the people on how to live and accept the authoritarian HOA regime under its adhesion contract and under pro-HOA special laws. Yet, it maintains legislative action committees in all 50 state legislatures to insure that its teachings and view of the new American political and social systems continues to prevail.
Do not falter, do not dishearten, as you continue to battle before the legislature for your rights as an American. Take heart from the words of President Theodore Roosevelt in a speech made in 1910:
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Courage, and remember: Illegitimati non Carborundum. Don’t let the bastards wear you down! Gen. Joseph Stillwell, WW II.
