    Patriotic Group To Build Armed 'Defensible' Neighborhood Fortress

    A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty.
    The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty."
    According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that "neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors' business, that neighbors live and let live."
    Citadel explains that residents in the community will be bound by the following:
    • Patriotism
    • Pride in American Exceptionalism
    • Our proud history of Liberty as defined by our Founding Fathers, and
    • Physical preparedness to survive and prevail in the face of natural catastrophes --such as Hurricanes Sandy or Katrina -- or man-made catastrophes such as a power grid failure or economic collapse.
    Residents should also agree that being "prepared for the emergencies of life and being proficient with the American icon of Liberty -- the Rifle -- are prudent measures."
    Some of the benefits of the Citadel community include a safe, well-prepared, patriotic community where children will be educated in school, not indoctrinated.
    The community will be protected by a perimeter wall that will be inaccessible to "tourists." Each neighborhood within the community will have lower walls, dividing the town into defensible sections.
    The website has a link to applications where prospective residents can sign up. According to Citadel, more than 200 families have completed applications, even before any land has been purchased.
    While Citadel may sound wonderful to many who are reading this, the community has posted a warning on their home page:
    "Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles."
    Citadel says that every patriot selected to live within the community "will voluntarily agree to follow the footsteps of our Founding Fathers by swearing to one another our lives, our fortunes and our Sacred Honor to defend one another and Liberty against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

    It sounds like a good concept, but the images from the past like Waco, TX come to mind. I hope it works out and the idea spreads.

    Years ago there was an article in the American Rifleman ( I Believe)
    It suggested that if enough patriots moved to a sparsley populated state like maybe Wyoming. They could soon control the state government & in short turn a whole state into a " Citadel" .

    I read an article yesterday comparing Glenn Beck's "Independence Park" and "The Citadel". It was more of a tongue in cheek comparison, but I did find it interesting that two different groups are looking at doing similar things to distance themselves from the Federal Government and the takers. My wife said "let's go!" until she found out its probably going to be in Idaho. She wants to head south toward warmer weather. LOL.

    Well it sounds more like a like-minded prepper community. I figure if it happened it would be like the Amish where they have their community and only interact with outsiders when necessary. I do fear a Waco-type reaction if they get too far into the extreme.

    Communities are already doing this they just don't have a name like "Citadel". We just call them by their town or city names.

    Yeah just don't drink the special punch that's being made. That's for a larger gathering when the aliens are on their way.

    I'm not quite understanding the difference between this and the "gated communities" with their own armed security.

    Half who sign up will be Feds or worse...closet commies! Of course the communities might just have a use for "natural" fertilizer!
