[AMRadio] Fighting deed restrictions

My answer to the whole cc&r debate is what happens 10-15 years down the road 
when it becomes almost impossible to find a house outside of a deed 
restricted property. around here it already has become increasingly 
difficult to find non deed restricted property. cc&r properties are popping 
up at an alarming rate with no sign of slowing down even in these economic 
times. actually these economic times may be driving the craze for affordable 

so it is not simple as wright and wrong or black and white with this topic.

some of these deed restrictions are draconian and i beleive the government 
should put restriction on what HOA's can and Can't do.

for anyone who hasn't seen it rent The Colony starring John Ritter. it's 
almost scary how much was predicted in this movie that has become true over 
the years.

Thank You,
