Why are the politicos so surprised at this inevitable turn of events with Imperial President, Donald the Trump, here in the bastion of democracy? Maybe because they have long ignored the fact that 23% of Americans live in HOA-LAND, where authoritarian governments rule the people outside the fundamental social contract known as the US Constitution.
For years, the politicos and state legislatures have denied that these HOA-LAND governments are de facto governments stripping their people of constitutional protections on the flimsy argument that the people openly and willingly agreed to live under such conditions. Irrelevant and without merit! This issue is first and foremost a constitutional question!
The very nature of the Declarations of Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CC&Rs) and state laws protecting and defending HOAs are ab initio (from the very start) invalid and unconstitutional. Everything else that follows in notwithstanding. Yet, as an example, the Arizona Legislature passed HB 2411 this past session and the Governor signed the bill. It is facially – just read the words – a violation of the Arizona Constitution, Article 4, Part 2, Section 13.
But, who cares? Certainly not state legislatures, nor the media that has kept its place and remained mum, nor the public interest constitutional “protector” entities. Nobody cares, and so we have HOA-LAND imperial dictatorships posing as democracies. “Imperial” because the very legal structure of HOAs does not permit the effective and genuine functioning of a democracy.
