The two-party system as it stands is corrupt. By running as a Republican Paul is attacking the corruption head-on. Third party candidates are easily shut out, but the Republicans - even with all their money, power, and media, are having to scramble to shut out Paul. The media can ignore the Libertarian candidate or the Green Party candidate, but when they ignore one of the Republican candidates their perfidy is exposed. They keep doing it and we keep seeing it. The Republican establishment is forced to cheat and their perfidy is exposed. The fact that Romney and Obama are virtually identical can't be seen without Paul's oppposing views. Paul represents the people and it is the people who have been shut out.
