Just to lay down a marker, in the 2008 presidential election, the Libertarian Party received a total of 523,686 votes or 0.4% of the total popular vote. Given the expected windfall of votes the Libertarian Party will receive this year from Ron Paul supporters, it is safe to say that if the Libertarian Party does not garner at least 3 to 5 times as many votes as it did in 2008, that will mean that the votes were stolen. Of course I'm not suggesting who would be responsible for stealing the votes but just that they would have been stolen.
