Now, how exactly would it help us

if future LP candidates gain more credibility? The goal of registering Republican wasn't just to vote for Ron Paul. It was so we could build a party within a party in which to run future Congressional AND presidential candidates should Ron Paul not make it this year. If we build up the LP and the LP becomes a force to be reckoned with by 2020 or 2024 when we finally have the numbers to capture the GOP nomination for president, we're going to be competing with two major parties in the general election - which means the Democratic nominee will win with less than a majority because libertarians will end up splitting their votes.
