You are welcome to come by anytime and I will give you some good reading on political science, you seem very deficient in your education concerning that subject. You give your tacit consent to follow all legally established guidelines your HOA board contrives so long as you are a resident at the Imperial House. You are welcome to contest any of its rulings.
Representative government works great, so long as it is protecting every individual's freedom equally. I'll tell you what doesn't work though, is collective ownership of property, as inevitably one person does something that another person does not like, so the board, in order to be fair to all, must outlaw said behavior of all residents.
Private property is the only rational form of property, and so long as you choose to live somewhere that tries to uphold the contradiction "collective" or "group" property, you're always going to run into this problem, as whoever is on your HOA board are actually the ones who control the disposal of said property, not you, nor any of the other home owners. This is why all collectivist states fail, and why they all inevitably become tyrannical. The solution is private ownership. Buy a house, or stop bitching--this is what you signed up for, literally. If you don't like it, blame yourself, not those people acting in the manner in which they were elected to act.
