The libertarian party will get matching campaign funds from the federal election commission. They will have to be included in the debates also. The Koch's will be pouring a billion dollars into the party . I don't know who they will run. But they will run a very high profile candidate who will be well funded.
Local, State, and Federal Libertarian candidates are on the ballot in all 50 states every election and yet they've never won a single national or statewide contest.
And the vast majority of the 169 "libertarians holding office currently in the USA" are local government officials elected to positions ranging from Park District Boards to Neighborhood Councils.
I've been following Larry Schneck during his tenure on the Osceola County (Florida) Soil and Water Conservation Board Seat 3 and really think he's going places. Watch out because he's going to take this country by storm! (Sarcasm)
So that 169 elected libertarian number they boast about on their website is just a tiny bit misleading...

By November ,they way things are going the republican party will be down to about 25,000,000 voters. Couple that with the likely hood that some 10 to 15 million new voters will participate and you have a dynamic that means the republican party itself will be a third party.
I believe the current idiots running the republican party are rapidly destroying it. Any conservative with a brain is abandoning the insanity and the cruelty that has gripped the party.
Who cares if 23% of Republicans no longer identify as Republicans? They still vote that way and that's all that matters.
That's why I've said a million times that there's no such thing as an "independent" voter anymore. We all have our tribes and stick with them regardless of party affiliation.
Ask an "independent" what their views on abortion are and you'll get a better understanding of the type of politician they vote for in each election.

Maybe it will "create a shit storm America has never experienced before" or maybe Donald and Fox "News" will spin even the most damaging findings as "Fake News" and absolutely nothing will come of it.
It's very, very, very, VERY difficult to remove a sitting President. We have to resign ourselves to the fact that Donald will almost certainly be President for four and quite possibly eight years. And Democrats will have no one to blame but ourselves.
Well, and Bernie or busters.
