The Blue Republican Revolution for Ron Paul with the Foundation for Economic Education’s Robin Koerner

In 2012, thousands of progressives and independents registered as Republicans to support Ron Paul and ended up becoming the largest coalition of his campaign. How in the world did that happen??

It all started with a Huffington Post article by today’s guest, Robin Koerner, who challenged people who love peace to become a “Blue Republican,” just for a year — and the rest is history.

But a lot has changed since then, and if we want to get those Blue Republicans and other liberty-curious voters back on our side, we need to understand why we lost them in the first place.

So here’s what you’ll learn in this episode of Leading Liberty:

  • What a “Blue Republican” is, what they want, and why it matters


  • A 2-word sentence starter to help change hearts and minds in political writing


  • What Trump, Ron Paul, and Bernie Sanders have in common that made them so popular


  • How we can win back the Ron Paul supporters who defected to Donald Trump


  • The most important psychology fundamental we need to understand to be more persuasive communicators


  • And lots more!

So on that note, let’s dive into the interview.

  1. Hey Jenn,

    I’m loving what you’re doing. The topics are great, and the marketing tips are fantastic. One issue I want to bring to your attention. I’ve heard you talk about show notes in several episodes, but it wasn’t until the interview with Robin Koerner, that I actually heard you say where to find them. It may be because iTunes seems to be cutting off the end of each podcast. You may want to mention where the show notes are in the intro as well.

    I’m glad that you feel that we are a part of your life enough to talk about your personal triumphs & tragedies. I won’t tell you that I’m sorry to hear about your divorce. You’re are obviously a strong person, and doing what you need to do for yourself and your kid. I will say that things will get better, and when you come out the other side, you will be far better off than you can imagine. It’s the hard times that teach us, and make us who we are.
