If you look at what he did and how ran the state, there is a reason the status-quo will do anything they can to marginalize him, because he couldn't be bought by lobbyists. He surprised the heck out of the other two parties and they don't want that to happen again.

It is far past time we get serious about voting for third party candidates, or as Ron Paul puts it, a second party since the other two are the same except for social issues. I've been doing it for the past several elections and refuse to vote for rebloodlicans or democrips until I stop hearing about "civil-forfeiture".
