Both Gary Johnson and Austin Petersen were making gestures to get anti-trump conservatives to join the LP. If their lawsuit against the DNC and RNC ends in a success, then we could see the LP on the stage with Trump and Hillary. Also with Republican donors looking at an independent run, I do wonder if they will not just back AP or Johnson. They would not have to worry about getting the candidate on the ballot.

I would love to see the Libertarian Party become more viable, but not like that. Hopefully they win their lawsuit and they get on the debate stage and that's it because the last time the GOP donor class co-opted a movement they turned the Tea Party into what it became. Worse yet, they could just transfer the GOP establishment to that party while ditching the Trump led Republicans.

Is this the start of the libertarian movement?  Maybe this was the plan all along.  Get the crazies in the Republican Party then defect to the libertarians.

If they win their lawsuit then that would also help the Green Party which is the more likely destination for disaffected Democrats (read: far left).
