2018 Mid-term elections. Libertarians still helping Democrats get elected

Anyone who thinks that the Libertarian Party is a logical choice to being a conservative Republican should understand how often Libertarian candidates help Democrats get elected.
The Senate race in Montana is a perfect example.  Democrat Jon Tester has been projected to win with 49.4% against Republican Matt Rosendale with 47.8%. But there was a third party Libertarian candidate named Rick Brekenridge with almost no campaign to speak of who pulled in 2.9% of the vote.
Just as what happened in Virginia 4 years ago, the Libertarian candidate received a valuable assist with a statewide printing and mailing boosting the Brekenridge campaign and no one knows where the money came from.
In Virginia, an investigation proved that the Democrat Party paid for a similar state-wide mailing that helped the Libertarian candidate pull in just enough votes to allow the Democrat to narrowly pass the Republican.
Whether or not the Libertarian candidates are suffering delusions of grandeur or just overblown egos, their presence on a ballot enables the Democrats to siphon off  votes  that would have go to the Republican.

Here's the complete story on the Virginia election.

The root causes of political madness

Dr. Lyle Rossiter is a forensic psychiatrist. In 2006 he wrote a book called "The Liberal Mind, The Psychological Causes of Political Madness". This book has become a mainstay of political humor poking fun at liberals and Democrats alike. Now a new fact has been uncovered that adds to the story.
In New York City, the Mecca for liberal education is Columbia University. On the Columbia University campus there are probably more liberals, socialists, communists and Democrats per capita than anywhere in the world. What many people do not realize is that in 1900, Columbia's Morningside campus was once the home of another institution, the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum.

So the root causes of political madness stem from the foundations of an old insane asylum.

Quote: "The Bloomingdale Insane Asylum once occupied much of what is now the Columbia University Main Campus. In 1821, the asylum opened its doors, and twenty years later, when the New York City Lunatic Asylum opened for the destitute, Bloomingdale essentially became reserved for wealthier patients (although it failed to offer better treatment). The hospital grounds eventually became filled with gardens and walkways to assist with the patients’ recuperation. In the 1880’s, the asylum’s properties were sold off to different institutions in Morningside Heights, including Columbia University. Today, the only remaining building from Bloomingdale is Buell Hall, which houses the university’s Maison Fran├žaise French cultural center and some architectural galleries."
