We’re a national grassroots movement of values-based, common sense people on a mission to make Dr. Ben Carson our next president.
Who is Dr. Ben Carson?
At the age of 33, Dr. Carson was the youngest ever selected to run a major division of Johns Hopkins University Hospital. Now a best-selling author, commentator and humanitarian, Dr. Carson has a compelling vision for America's future that embraces our founding principles and values of personal responsibility and freedom.
Who is the 2016 Committee?
The 2016 Committee is made of more than 30,000 grassroots citizen activists across the country. Initially founded to persuade Dr. Carson to run for president, our purpose now is to lay the groundwork necessary to secure the nomination and ultimately elect him as president in 2016.
What do we do?
The 2016 Committee is on a mission to educate Americans about Dr. Carson and why he is the best candidate to unite, heal, inspire and lead our nation. We work with volunteers across the country on a number of initiatives as well as fundraise to support these activities.

Economists Are Giving Dr. Ben Carson's Tax Reform Plan High Marks
The current system is riddled with countless tax loopholes, shelters and carve-outs. Dr. Carson's Tax Reform plan is based on simplicity, transparency and fairness and would eliminate the needless complexity of the federal tax code. Every American, rich or poor, with or without lobbyists or lawyers, would be treated equally in their ability to achieve the American Dream.
Setting the Record Straight
Despite Senator Cruz's apology for his campaign's dirty tricks during and following the Iowa Caucus, his surrogates continue to spread misinformation in an attempt to sabotage Dr. Carson's campaign. Earlier this week on "The Kelly File," Glenn Beck defended Cruz's underhanded tactics in Iowa and spread more false information about The 2016 Committee's work in New Hampshire.
I support Dr. Ben because he makes sense. He is not a politician. He says what he feels and believes, not just what you want to hear. I want someone who has common sense and a business sense.
Dr. Ben Carson is an amazing godly leader! His faith, intelligence, common sense and love of country is unsurpassed. He is not out for himself or his gain, but truly wants to bring our nation back to the strong nation it once was.
I support Dr. Ben Carson for President! He's a man of integrity who has earned the trust of countless parents and their children, and I would trust him as President of the United States.
God is good. I believe He gave us Dr. Ben Carson to heal our broken country. Our land of liberty is going down the drain due to moral relativism. Dr. Ben Carson embodies morality, courage, integrity, logic, loyalty, wisdom, tenacity, and common sense.
America needs Dr. Ben Carson’s vision, logical solutions, and leadership! His life story has inspired people for decades and he has been a mentor and shining example of the importance of education, family, personal responsibility, and reaching one’s maximum potential.
Dr. Ben Carson has effectively outlined the path Americans need to take to preserve the United State of America as the nation in which every individual is free to peruse liberty and happiness to the enrichment of self and our fellow man. It is the goal of our founding fathers.
When saw the movie GIFTED HANDS I became even more impressed with the man Dr. Carson had become. After his speech in 2013, I started to think 'This is a man who should lead our country.' I KNEW I had to be a part of the 2016 Committee.
Dr. Carson has inspired me through his speeches, lectures and books. I believe his motives are pure, his drive is unrivaled and that he can and will help restore the American experiment to that which our founding fathers envisioned, given the opportunity.
Every time since I hear Dr. Carson approach issues in his soft—but very strong voice—and absorb the "Common Sense", I feel like someone hears and understand our problems and our needs.
It is critical for me to know that the person I see in the public forum is the same person representing my interest behind closed doors. Dr. Ben Carson is a man of integrity and his faith-filled and conservative values are apparent to all who have ears to hear.
Welcome to the fellowship of common sense Americans clamoring for the accomplished, courageous, common sense Dr. Ben Carson to be our next President of the United States.
