As someone who has had his share of battles with HOAs and a true believer in property rights, I share your sentiment but the counterpoint to:

"I am paying out the wazoo for this house, so however I want to fix it up is my business."

is you can pay out the wazoo somewhere else not governed by covenants to fix it up the way you want, if you can't abide by the rules here.  Unfortunately with human beings there is a lot of subjectivity in the enforcement or lack of enforcement of the rules.  The way I see it my personal tastes are like fine wine and some of my neighbors drink Thunderbird out of a brown bag and then throw the empty on the ground, of course some of my neighbors think I'm drinking Mad Dog 20/20 ;).
