Posted on 01/12/2013 5:15:00 PM PST by bimboeruption
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."
Is this the beginning of the Bosniazation of the USA?
All those “malcontents” gathered into one, convenient place? Don’t tell DiFi; she’ll wet herself in anticipation.
Just saw the article about the rioting in Detroit over free government housing...Don’t think any of that will be going on in THIS community.
But if there were 2,000 or 10,000 citadels, she’d s**t a brick.
I’m thinking its smart real estate developers seeing a great way to cash in.
” All homes will be built of poured concrete for exceptional strength and durability. Your home will be built to your specs (details available at this website) with utilities stubbed to the interior. You select the facade for the exterior of your home. You are responsible for completing the interior of your home as you wish.”
>Is this the beginning of the Bosniazation of the USA?<
Righto, Pat Buchanan addresses that here:
Ping for later.
Somewhere in the bowels of Obamaland, Citadel was just placed on the DHS targeting list.
Do they have a gun range?
Sounds awesome.....but I bet Dee Cee will try to go Waco on them.
Maybe Trump’s behind it.
Sounds like an idea whose time has come ... again.
F Troop, anyone?
No thanks, no war has EVER been won based upon a solely defensive posture.
Frankly I would research history and adapt modern day technology based upon how Genghis Khan invaded Europe.
Even the Nazi invasion of Poland has very good blitzkrieg strategies.
There is some wisdom in their plan.
Individual citizens operating on their own can be taken out one at a time.
To have a chance in a SHTF moment, neighborhoods are going to need to develop coordination, structure, communication, logistics, boundaries, ID, etc.
1645: "The persons hereinafter specified shall be maintained to garrison the fort, on such allowances as shall be found most advantageous for the Company, and for greater security, the colonists and their domestics shall be holden, under certain penalties, to provide themselves with good muskets, and other weapons for their own defence, so as to be able, in time of necessity, with the garrison, to resist a general attack, without the Director, colonists, or whosoever it may be, having the power to take into the pay of the Company any soldiers..."

No “Free Stuff” folks need apply!
