Attention Haters: You lost.
If one can be judged by the people who line up against him...
SPLC doesn't like me. Stormfront doesn't like me. Vanderboegh. HuffPo. Sovereigns. The list is long and diverse. But from racists to Communists (who claim to be Patriots) to Marxist media to Liberal simpletons, I am despised by most of the despicable elements in our society.
I'm cool with that.
Here's an interesting perspective: I am entreprenurial and I have owned or partnered in several small businesses. Some did better than others. Some still generate revenue and help pay the bills, such as the publishing company. Some never took off, and some are options for my future. Interesting, is it not, that the people out there claiming "scam" or other unfounded garbage have never had a business dealing with me? There are, at most, five disappointed customers and one former employee complaints online, from my entire business lifespan. That's not a bad business record, in my consideration.
But as we have all seen, facts do not matter to one's enemies.
Not even the Feds ever accused me of a "scam". Regarding the Citadel project, we all know that LEO is looking on. They know where every dollar regarding the projects is located (various business accounts). They know that not a dime has been mis-spent and is accountable. They know proper business paperwork and filings have been done. They know every detail and nuance about the business side of the project. And they have *not* even telephoned or knocked on the door asking questions - because they know that the project is exactly as has been discussed, publicly, and presented, publicly, for more than 6 months.
And if LEO ever does ask for clarification of this or that, the answers are easily pulled from records.
So, if I stand opposed to and despised by racists, Marxists and filth like MBV - good.
When I look to my right and my left I find people standing with me who I am proud have chosen to stand with me based on our interactions. There are hundreds in this community alone.
Here's another interesting tidbit: We all knew from the beginning that because the Citadel concept was born on this blog that one day my name would be used to malign the project and everyone involved, because the ideals embodied in the Citadel offend Enemies of Liberty. They do not like the idea of patriotic Americans who dare exercise their rights and choose to live among one another and respect the Founding Ideals of the republic. And not one single Patriot has abandoned the project as a result of the attacks of small minds. Not one. Not one single person has asked for a refund. Not one. (and if they did ask, a refund check would be cut, of course.) And more people join the project every day.
So, if I am judged by my enemies I am equally judged by the people who choose to be allies - and I am proud to stand with a group of patriotic Americans of various races, ethnicities, religions and world views.
The Citadel project is now alive, not only as a venture, but as an ideal in the hearts and minds of Liberty-loving Americans from coast to coast. The project has weathered first contact with ideological enemies and emerged even stronger than before, now tempered to an even stronger hardness by the fires of enemies.
Spring arrives in just about 2 months, and site development will proceed on schedule.
Enemies of Liberty: You lost. You can't destroy the Citadel project, because it is not about Kerodin. Thank you for helping make the project stronger. Thank you for helping more Patriots find the project.
