Robin Koerner is a British-born citizen of the USA, who currently serves as Academic Dean of the John Locke Institute. He holds graduate degrees in both Physics and the Philosophy of Science from the University of Cambridge (U.K.). He is also the founder of WatchingAmerica.com, an organization of over 100 volunteers that translates and posts in English views about the USA from all over the world.
Robin may be best known for having coined the term “Blue Republican” to refer to liberals and independents who joined the GOP to support Ron Paul’s bid for the presidency in 2012 (and, in so doing, launching the largest coalition that existed for that candidate).
Robin’s current work as a trainer and a consultant, and his book If You Can Keep It , focus on overcoming distrust and bridging ideological division to improve politics and lives. His current project, Humilitarian, promotes humility and civility as a basis for improved political discourse and outcomes.

Friday night we are bringing back the LPWI trivia night! There will be time to socialize, have a few drinks and test your noggin in this pub-style trivia event hosted by Robin Koerner.
At 9:00 AM on Saturday morning the LPWI annual convention will be called to order. The agenda will include Platform & Bylaws amendments, national convention delegate selection, and other resolutions from the floor. It will be a busy day so we have allotted extra time for the business meeting this year. A detailed agenda and Itinerary will be published soon.
Sunday morning before you hit the road make sure to check out the executive committee meeting where we will be filling volunteer roles and putting a plan into place to execute the objectives that come out of Saturday’s meeting.
