View Full Version : Road to 2016 Victory Fund - Donate to the 1st step towards Rand Paul 2016

Over the past five years, I've been travelling the country, coast to coast, simply to cover one of the most important political movements in our country's history. The campaigns of Ron and Rand Paul have proven to have a lasting effect on our country's overall demeanor, as evidenced by the rapid growth of the Liberty Caucus in the U.S. House, and the reduced desire to want to invade and bomb other countries. Without people like Ron Paul educating the masses this never could have happened, in my opinion.

I was a firsthand witness to the liberty movement after Ron Paul ran in 2008, and began by documenting the U.S. Senate campaign of a certain ophthalmologist from Bowling Green, Kentucky. Since then, I've attended more than 130 events from California to Texas to Iowa, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, Indiana, Arizona, and dozens of other states, uploading thousands of images in an attempt to combat the liberal media bias of other photo databases like AP or Getty. Photographing the liberty movement from the liberty perspective allows the average citizen to gain an accurate portrayal of the movement as a whole, and allows voters the opportunity to see the the movement that Ron and Rand Paul have inspired.

As we approach the 2016 election, and the campaign in 2015 gets closer and closer, I've been weighing my options in regards to the best way to cover the potential campaign of Rand Paul in 2016. I have considered reaching out to the campaign about the possibility of providing photographic documentation of events leading up the 2016 election, but I feel as though I should reach out to the grassroots who have helped me thus far first.

As such, I've decided to launch an Indiegogo campaign that will allow me to establish funds to travel and document the early phases of the 2016 election cycle. I will attend and post photos from all of the important events that the liberty movement would be interested in seeing covered, for as much as these funds allow me to do so. For those that donate, there are also several perks that are associated with certain dollar amounts, so please take advantage of those as well.

If you feel like this is a worthwhile cause please consider donating at the link below. If you would like to look at my portfolio of images from the past five years, you can find my Ron Paul (https://www.flickr.com/photos/gageskidmore/collections/72157626856448292/) and Rand Paul (https://www.flickr.com/photos/gageskidmore/collections/72157622755879848/) photos by clicking each of their names.
