Why do conservatives buy homes in communities that enact such draconian regulations? Isn't the government doing enough to regulate you? I just don't get it.
In our case, it was because we had two days to find a house halfway across the country from our former home, and this subdivision offered the house we felt was best for the 9 of us, at a price we could live with. You make your tradeoffs. Rules here are pretty reasonable, aside from the clothesline problem, and I'm on the Architectural Review committee :-).
