He was in a Bain Capital owned mental hospital. And they would charge anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 a day. So when he had his day in court he got moved from the for profit mental hospital of Bains to the VA hospital where the cost will drop to a very small amount. Even though he is being forced to go to the mental hospital and being held against his will. He still must pay all the bills. He must be working with the judge and know whats going on and has came to some middle ground with the judge. He knows he can't leave but he has picked somewhere that reduces the cost to him.

Bush started the Commission on mental health in 2002.
After the Virginia Tech shootings Virginia changed the laws with recommendations from the Commission under Bush.
Virginia changed the laws in 2008 under Bush.
You should learn some facts instead of pushing propaganda.

Oath Keepers is coming to the aid of this young Marine veteran and our rallying cry will be “CHARGE HIM, OR RELEASE HIM.” We cannot allow “mental illness” designations to be used as a weapon against political dissidents in America. See the below article by Brandon Smith for the disturbing facts regarding the use of mental health detention against Virginia Marine veteran Brandon Raub because of his constitutionally protected free speech on his Facebook page. As Brandon Smith illustrates, this is exactly what the Soviet Union did to dissidents who dared to criticize the communist regime – they were labeled “insane” and carted off to mental wards. Now it has begun here in America. This is a blatant circumvention of constitutional criminal due process which is every bit as dangerous as being designated an “unlawful combatant” under the NDAA and taken away to a military brig for detention without charges. How is this any different? Mental health detention can be used in exactly the same way. This is an incredibly dangerous crossing of a critical line in the sand – the politicization of the mental health system, using it as a weapon against dissidents to punish them for their constitutionally protected political speech. This case is the camel’s nose under the tent, and we need to stomp on it HARD, right now. And we will.

Something to note is that he is also a Ron Paul supporter and listed his work as the Ron Paul Revolution. The above post could be taken many ways by many different people.
This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it. Abraham Lincoln
"...Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..." Thomas Jefferson.
FROM the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. www.ushistory.org...
It is an observation of one of the profoundest inquirers into human affairs that a revolution of government is the strongest proof that can be given by a people of their virtue and good sense. John Adams
Revolution means democracy in today's world, not the enslavement of peoples to the corrupt and degrading horrors of totalitarianism. Ronald Reagan
I take the term "Revolution" in one way only - When extreme dissatisfaction with a tyrannical government arises we are obliged to revolt - as in Revolution. Read Abraham Lincoln especially on this democratic ideal.
You missed the point
When free speech is abrogated - or abridged for whatever reason - then the Revolution should and must proceed with zeal and violence.
It would be a good idea for you to actually READ the post and then to read the attachment.
I'm sure the notion of "Revolution" started with one man TAKING ACTION on his principles and through his example decided to act themselves. That might very well be what happens in this case as well.
Especially if the bastards kill him or disappear him, which is very likely in the Fascist climate we presently find ourselves.
Your line of non-reasoning makes me sick.

I start killing people - I'm not going to do so just because I'm pissed and have the delusion that I am going to be some part or leader of a revolution. I'm going to do so knowing that I have A) no other option, or B) a very plausible shot at bringing the vision of a better government to fruition - meaning I can see the hostilities through to the end and I have enough level-headed people to not devolve into a "game of thrones" with a dozen different parties vying for control of a revolution or dethroned nation.
It is very easy to be taken out of context and put through the ringer for it.
I guess you think you are some kind of fortune teller.
I talk like him all the time
and i would never take a life unless i was in immediate physical danger of losing my own or if you were and that was the only way i could save it.
Just as the poster above stated this man is out of enslavement and those who put him there had no grounds to put him there other than their own delusions.
Just one civilian agency (the VA) pushing its boundaries in a situation that was unclear
More than likely, if you were in immediate physical danger requiring you to make a snap judgment call on another person's life - you'll do what 80% of the population does and lock up. You'll freeze until given instruction on what to do.
Yes, but that's hardly the issue now, is it? The issue is that someone made the unilateral decision to put him there in the first place.
About 50,000:1 odds that you don't.
Earlier today, 26-year-old former U.S. Marine Brandon Raub was released from a psychiatric facility via a judge’s order, who ruled that the government had no legal grounds to hold him.
Tonight on Glenn Beck’s show on GBTV, soon-to-become TheBlazeTV, John Whitehead, Raub’s lead attorney and president of the Rutherford Institute, gave his first interview following his client’s release to discuss the case.
Whitehead told Beck that he and his organization are planning to sue over a provision in Virginia state law that allows authorities to place a person in emergency custody and hold them for four hours unless a magistrate enters a temporary detention order (TDO). Raub was held under this law, specifically Va. Code § 37.2-808, for days.
Emergency custody; issuance and execution of order: Va. Code § 37.2-808
“We are getting ready to file a civil lawsuit…because [Raub] has been put through hell for a week,” said Whitehead. But, he explained, “Under the civil commitment law in Virginia, the police can do this.”
America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.
This is the land of Thomas Jefferson.
This is the land of Benjamin Franklin.
This is the land of Fredrick Douglas.
This is the land of Smedley Butler.
This is the land John F. Kennedy.
This is the land of Martin Luther King.
This is the land where the cowboy wins. This is the land where you can start from the bottom and get to the top. This is the land where regardless of you race and ethnicity you can succeed and build a better life for you and your family. This is the land where every race coexists peacefully. This is the land where justice wins. This is the land where liberty dwells. This is the land where freedom reigns. This is the land where we help the poor, and people help each other. This is land where people beat racism.
The Federal Reserve is wrong. They have designed a system based off of greed and fear. They designed a system to crush the middle class between taxes and inflation. This is wrong, and it is unjust. It is wrong.
