As a United State Marine, Brandon Raub fought for freedom abroad. As a United States citizen, Brandon fought for freedom here at home. For that he was locked up without just cause by his government in a manner typical of such liberty loving regimes as the current Russian or Chinese governments.
In case you were not aware of this travesty of justice, Brandon Raub was betrayed and incarcerated by the United States government with the assistance of the Chesterefield County Police for postings he made on Facebook. His freedom was taken away for several days without probable cause while he was given a mental health evaluation. A judge today declared that the petition submitted to detain Brandon contained NO facts or any information to explain why he was being held and deemed that his incarceration was a violation of his civil liberties.
While Brandon Raub was being detained, many of us voiced our concerns publicly and many fellow patriots and former Marines who served with Brandon took the time to protest his detention and demand that he be released. Absent from the list was the likes of the Reverend Jackson who seems always ready and willing to come to the aid of such great Americans such as Rodney King and Travon Martin. Also conspicuously absent from all of this was the Richmond Tea Party. Shame on them!
The government in this case argued that the statements made by Brandon on Facebook where “terrorist in nature,” a claim the judge wasn’t buyng. By contrast, Major Hasan murdered in cold blood members of the U.S. Army on America soil and the incidnet is declared one of work place violence.
Here is a copy of some of the things Brandon was posting to Facebook. Although only a portion of his postings, it gives you great insight into the kind of person Brandon Raub is and how he thinks. The text was provided to WTVR.com by his mother.

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.
We have allowed ourselves to be deceived and seduced by the powers of the printing press. It is not a good system. It discourages saving: the foundation for all stable economic activity. The Federal Reserve is artificially manipulating interest rates and creating phony economic data.
This thing has deceived our entire nation.
They created it in 1913. They also created the income tax in 1913. They encouraged the growth of debt so they can tax you on it. There is interest on the debt. Your government is in bed with these people. They want to enslave you to the government so that they can control every aspect of your lives. It is an empire based on lies. They operate of greed and fear.
There is a better way. It’s called freedom. Freedom is called a lot of things. But there is a true meaning. It means very simply that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as you are not infringing on the freedoms of other people.
I firmly believe that God set America apart from the other nations of the world. He saved a place where people could come to to escape bad systems of goverment. This system we have created works. It really works.
There is evil going on all around the world. The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.
Men and Women follow courage. They follow leadership, and courage. Our example has paved the way for people all around the world to change their forms of government.
Force is not the way because liberty is a powerful concept. The idea that men can govern themselves is the basis for every just form of government.
We can govern ourselves. We do not need to be governed by men who want to install a one world banking system. These men have machine hearts. Machine and unnatural hearts.
They have blocked out the possibility of a better world. They fear human progress. They have monopolies on everything.
This life can be free and beautiful. There are enough resources on this earth to support the world’s population. There are enough resources on this earth to feed everyone. There is enough land for everyone to own their own land and farm, and produce their own energy.
These people have been hiding technology. There are ways to create power easily. There is technology that can provide free cheap power for everyone. There are farming techniques that can feed the entire world.
The Bill of Rights is being systematically dismantled. Men have spilled their blood for those rights.
Your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters, and Americas best young men and women are losing their limbs. They are losing their lives. They are losing the hearts. They do not know why they are fighting. They are killing. And they do not know why.
They have done some extraordinary acts. Their deeds go before them. But these wars are lies. They are lies. They deceived our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights! Men died for those rights!
September Eleventh was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.
Your leaders betrayed you.
You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.
These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate fascism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.
There is hope. BUT WE MUST TAKE OUR REPUBLIC BACK.
Does any of what you just read appear to be the rant of a terrorist or of somebody who wishes harm upon his country? No, no it certainly does not. It sounds to me like a man who loves his country with all his heart and soul and who signed up to give his full measure of devotion in defense of it should he be called to do so.
It should horrify everyone who reads his words, Democrat and Republican alike, that there are those currently in our government who read them and concluded that the person writing them is either a terrorist or mentally ill. It should horrify you because next time this could be you. Say something the government doesn’t like, off to jail you go.
And don’t mistake the fact that just becaue the government lost this time that they won’t learn from their mistake and try again. Best you just shut your mouth.
In 1776, we the people would not have allowed a fellow citizen to be arrested and held without probable cause. We the people of 2012 harldy bat an eye as an innocent man’s liberty was robbed of him by the very people who have sworn an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.
Had enough yet? Are you willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with Brandon in defense of freedom? You better be or the freedom you were born into will not be there for your children. Inaction will serve to guarantee that our children’s birthright will be denied them.
With the arrest of Brandon Raub, the shinny city on a hill has become tarnished. We can no longer call ourselves a beacon of freedom to be envied by every other nation on earth when one of the basic tenants of our republic, freedom of speech has been so blatantly violated.
In 1776, a group of extraordinary men, by signing the Declaration of Independence in essence signed their own death warrant. They would be deemed traitors to the Kind of England and if captured, hanged at the end of a rope till dead. Those brave patriots and the men and women who would follow put their lives on the line, and in many cases gave their lives to ensure that you and I would be free. I do not intend to allow those sacrifices to go for not. I will stand with men like Brandon Raub and I will fight to ensure that my children will live in a free nation. If we are resolute in our purpose, we cannot be defeated.
Freedom has been attacked, and freedom will be defended.
