The Citadel is a developing community of Patriots in the mountains of Idaho who believe in Jefferson's Rightful Liberty and have chosen to live amongst one another, and have sworn our lives, our fortunes and our Sacred Honor to defend one another and Liberty.
Many of you are new to the Citadel Project, and have a million
questions. We ask you first read our FAQ's. Read about us, digest the
information, sleep on it. Don't rush into this, take your time to fully
understand what we are about and what it is you want. This is a life
changing decision, don't take it lightly. Take a step back and think
for a while. If we don't answer your questions right away, it's ok,
relax, breathe, we'll get to it in due time.
Again, we are all volunteers here with day jobs and families to attend to, please be patient with us. Thank you.
We are posting this on all of our media. We are temporarily turning off comments. We have gotten a lot of media exposure in the last few days and our traffic has really jumped.
For those of you with comments that have been submitted, we will get to them. We understand your concerns. The reality is that many of the detail questions don't have answers yet. Much remains to be decided. Some questions won't be answerable until we have a site picked out. Some questions won't be answerable until the current political turmoil settles, one way or another. Some answers will change as we go forward. We will adapt to whatever situation develops.
An important point to remember is that this isn't a top down, everything planned by us community. What we are building is a framework of Liberty and security that Patriots can build their own life in. Much of what has been initially proposed is no more than a draft version to start working from. It will grow and change and develop as we go forward.
Many of your questions are "why aren't you building/providing/doing _______?" We believe free markets are the best way to provide the goods and services that will be needed by the Citadel. If you don't like that answer, the Citadel is probably not a good fit for you. The III Arms Company will provide the initial financial base to get started, but beyond that those who move to the Citadel will need to bring work or income with them or have employment with a current business already arranged. We aren't going to paint a rosy, unrealistic picture of what is needed. We aren't in this to "sell" something. We are in this to build the community we want to live in. It's not going to be easy and it's not going to be simple. Don't let that discourage you if you are interested, just be realistic about what it's going to take to do this.
