Consider the possibility that your mandatory (or volunteer) HOA and Board of Directors is taken over by Fundamentalist Right-Wing Religious Extremists for their own purposes and financial gain. Couldn't happen, you think? Why not? Both are non-profit corporations intent upon controlling and fleecing their powerless (HOA) members.
Neither corporation is accountable to its "members" for financial expenditures and both are totalitarian monstrosities of unbridled control with powers beyond ordinary USA government subsidiaries! Stay tuned and see what develops when HOA Industry Controllers link forces with Right-Wing Religious Extremists for fun and profit. They both love nothing more than a captive audience and power to discipline, control, punish, and confiscate your money and property.
