"Compromise" is a euphemism for fraud and corruption.

All you have to do is live in a community that relies on small government types that work quietly, behind the scenes with neo-liberals. We see it on a local level all the time. They conveniently game the rules to work in their favor. Their political shenanigans reach into our HOAs. In fact, our HOAs in Florida are a beautiful example of the crooked behavior I am talking about. If you can't see how it will affect you at a national level, you'll certainly see it at the HOA level.

Decisions are made at the board level, which are gaming the system. I, personally, can attest that HOA boards have been known to jump the process defined in their own documents, in order to protect their status quo. For example, our HOA documents state that annual meetings to elect officers is required. Florida Statute reinforces that this rule shall be adhered to because our documents mandate it. It's not every two years, it's every year. The only way to change the process is through a vote of the full membership with the required percentage approval. But it cannot be changed by a board decision. Yet, to my knowledge, based on the mailer we received last year, they didn't announce elections last year, and I haven't heard about one for this year.

I can only imagine that they are using a method of announcing their meetings that they know is not reaching every member in the community. It's a gamed process, which only gets encouraged by the crooked process that we keep witnessing at the federal level.
