Ben Carson Reveals Potential 2016 Campaign Theme (Hint: It’s the Pledge of Allegiance)

Newfound conservative star Dr. Ben Carson, who recently named his 2016 presidential campaign chairman (should he decide to run), now has a campaign theme and most voters will probably have heard it before.

When asked Monday on Fox Business Network to describe the message that would define his potential campaign, Carson recited a portion of the American Pledge of Allegiance.

“If I was running,” Carson said, “I would run on the message that we are one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

The meaning of that, Carson said, is that the U.S. needs “to have values and principles, we need to know who we are and we need to work together.”

Carson went on to say “those factions” that have created “wars on everything” (like the so-called “war on women”) must be “stopped.”
