    This is a riot and I wish, in reality, it could work. I would consider it.

    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.


    SNIP:

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

    I see no problems as long as they follow applicable laws. If they start deciding that certain laws don't apply to them, then they have problems.

    If a group of like-minded people want to form their own community with their shared values, ethics, that's their right and their business. I don't see how they'll be able to skirt the federal government or laws and regulations from the State of Idaho, though.

    I think it's sort of depressing that people feel there is a need for something like this, but at least they're free to give it a go. I'd probably be one of the first "citizens" kicked out due to my rebellious nature.:D

    Yes, you are right. There will always be the "fringe" element but if there were a judicial system in place, that could deal with `em!!! "Shape up or ship out!" :badgrin:

    If this country continues down its current path these people aren't going to be the fringe for very long.
