Another survivalist development in Idaho?

ST. MARIES, Idaho (AP) — A group of survivalists wants to build a giant walled fortress in the woods of the Idaho Panhandle, a medieval-style city where residents would be required to own weapons and stand ready to defend the compound if society collapses.

The proposal is called the Citadel and has created a buzz among residents of nearby St. Maries, Idaho. The project would more than double the population of Benewah County, home to 9,000 souls.

Locals have many questions, but organizers so far are pointing only to a website billing the Citadel as “A Community of Liberty.”

The website shows drawings of a stone fortress with room inside for up to 7,000 families.

Gives new meaning to "a gated community."

More right wing nut bags. These people are becoming very dangerous to our country. The Newtown killer and his mom were survivalists, the idiot who shot Gabby Gifford walked around reciting the bill of right and the constitution, and the killer in oaklahoma city was a militant crazy. Now today the guy who held the kid captive in the bunker. The Feds said they had to go in because he sat listening to rush the scumbag and other right wing dirtbags on the radio and was getting agitated . These people claim to love our country, but its their idea,of our country should be that worries me.
