Organisers have outlined plans for a community of 3,500 to 7,000 families of 'patriotic' Americans in western Idaho and more than 200 have already signed up through their website. The group has already purchased 20 acres in the area where they intend to build arms factory which will be used to fund the project.

In 1999 there were groups that “sold land” in the desert to escape the coming menace of 2000. This sounds similar except I’d take this far more seriously.

You better take a look at their plan first.

"Marxists, Socialists, Liberals and Establishment Republicans will likely find that life in our community is incompatible with their existing ideology and preferred lifestyles."

No gay marriage? No medical marijuana?

"There will be no recycling police and no local ordinance enforcers from City Hall."

Racists!

"Hundreds of families have signed up to join a new community dubbed the Citadel, an armed and 'defensible' fortress city..."

The European landscape is littered with the crumbling remnants of that concept. Defense was a failed strategy in the 12th century. In a era of armed UAVs, your enemy can now scrub your fortress city off the map from the air conditioned comfort of a govt. installation half way around the world. And then he can step out for a nice vente latte at the Starbucks in the lobby.

I agree.

Nearly 30,000 people packed into 2 to 3 thousand acres surrounded by watch towers with only 1 exit?

I think I know how this turns out. I believe I have seen the story before.

Correct me if I am mistaken...

Its not even a remotely realistic plan. You would have to impose far too many rules to make the place operate for me to be comfortable.

Sounds like what Glenn Beck is proposing. Did he steal someone else’s ideas again?

Wasn’t there a “Freedom Ship” fantasy proposal something like this, a few decades ago? It was motivated by tax concerns.

The only word that comes to my mind is “hostages”.

So many people getting ready to survive the end of the world. Something contradictory about all of that.
