Conservative commentator Glenn Beck is known for having some “interesting” ideas and his latest could literally be his biggest one yet. Glenn Beck is planning “Independence, U.S.A” , which is a city/ community based on free market, limited-government model according to theblaze.com .

Beck, who now resides in Texas, has toured “three possible sites in three different states” and has talked to two governors already.

From glennbeck.com :

While Independence is very much a dream at this point, the proposed city-theme park hybrid would bring several of Glenn’s seemingly disconnected projects into one place. Media, live events, small business stores, educational projects, charity, entertainment, news, information, and technology R&D – all of these things would have a home in Independence.

Beck explains his plans some more in this video.

    Are we *sure* this isn’t a promo stunt for Bioshock Infinite?
    If not, I call the franchise concession for the Ammo Bandito!

    A nutty right wing utopia? That should end well…
    Go Galt, just… go!

    Why stop with a city – find another country and be done with it. I’m pretty sure you won’t be missed.
