Hundreds sign up to live in the Citadel an armed fortress community planned for Idaho
The Daily Mail ^ | 14 January 2013 | Daniel Miller

Hundreds of families have signed up to join a new community dubbed the Citadel, an armed and 'defensible' fortress city where their freedoms and liberty will be fiercely protected.

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 an arms factory which will be used to fund the project.

It's Idaho. Every basement is an ammo factory and the world is your shooting range!

I don’t like the walls. And how will this stockade be governed? Will it get its own zip code?

Each to their own, but I refuse to live that close to there and in a Fort.

It is bad enough that my wife and I have recently decided to install steal hangers to allow us to bar the doors.

I recently bought a 12 GA Remington 870 and all of the stuff it takes to make it into a ‘home defense’ gun.

Having said that, I think Idaho would be a very good state to live in.

Unless you are retired or independently wealthy, this would have to be a bug-out location. Most people live where the jobs are and for most professionals those are in highly urbanized areas. This site appears to be akin to a walled medieval town with the agricultural areas being outside the walls. Otherwise, they would need an extensive greenhouse or aquaponics infrastructure.

“Radical Community” plans to set up enclave where they will act like Americans of the first 150 years of our history.

HOW RADICAL. (Sarcastic)

Depends on where it is in Idaho. I have an aunt and uncle near Boise whose home is close to a geothermal vane. They heat a fairly large house for next to nothing, mostly a maintenance fee for the conduit.

Their entire neighborhood does the same. It can be 10 below outside and their homes are a balmy 72 degrees inside. A control device which regulates the opening on the conduit keeps it within a couple of degrees.

There is a lot of this stuff which goes on in Idaho and most of the residents keep tight-lipped about it. They don't want a bunch of damn hippies moving in and ruining a good thing.

It is in most of rural America. I only live about 70 miles west of Detroit and people here do what they want regardless of the law.

When our township was under pressure to impose some new ordinances the state wanted the township supervisor said it would be pointless because the people of this area would mostly just ignore them.

Will the homeowner dues include the pool, tennis and club house...or is that separate? What size is the pool...Olympic, junior Olympic? Will they have bunco nights at the club house? Its there a dog grooming salon? Will there be matinee pricing at the theater?

As mentioned already by cripplecreek, the “organizer” of this community is a convicted extortionist. From what I’ve read about the area he’s planning to develop a community in, there are NO large tracts of private land suitable for development, with the majority of nearby land being either federally owned or tribal land.

His choice to develop a “patriot” community is interesting, because word around the web is that he’s run into some trouble previously for violations of federal firearms laws. Seems odd that a convicted extortionist who has had run-ins with the BATFE would choose to create a high-profiile real-estate operation meant to attract “patriots” seeking to create an armed and independent community.

Given the developer’s criminal past, and given the BATFE’s history of attempting to entrap lawful gun owners, this is looking like one hell of a setup. Regardless of whether this fellow is trying to rob or entrap people, it would be wise to tell your friends, family, and fellow forum-goers to not be taken in by this lying criminal sack of ****.

I read somewhere that you don’t OWN the house, but lease it.

I’ll pass. South FL is not so bad when it’s not summer.
