Bill Wilson, President of Americans for Limited Government

Bill Wilson is regarded as one of the most eloquent and powerful political figures of his generation and for more than 30 years has worked to advance conservative, free-market issues.  Over that time, he has become recognized as a top strategist and tactician on issue driven campaigns.

Wilson began his career as youth coordinator in the Reagan for President campaign of 1976, working the areas of northeast Maryland and southeastern Pennsylvania.  That same year, he joined the National Right to Work Committee as an organizer in a number of western states. For the next ten years Wilson worked for the Right to Work Committee, attaining the position of Vice-President of Operations.  He directed the successful enactment of the Idaho Right to Work law in 1986.

Subsequent projects directed by Wilson include regional operations to secure votes in support of President Reagan’s request for aid to the Freedom Fighters of Nicaragua, successful franchise battles by investor-owned utilities against government backed power Cooperatives, the development of a modern secondary mortgage market system in the newly freed Republic of Poland, and numerous Congressional campaigns.

In 1994 Wilson joined US Term Limits as an advisor managing various projects and initiative campaigns.  As a founding Board member of Americans for Limited Government, Wilson sat on the Executive Committee of ALG until serving the role as President of the organization from December, 2006 until May, 2013. And in 2009, Wilson and his organization were featured in the New York Times. Wilson left the Board of Directors at ALG in late 2016.

Wilson is married to the former Tessie Capellas.  They have two grown children and reside in Fairfax County, Virginia.

A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse as GOP establishment throws the midterms to Dems

By Bill Wilson The old saying that “a nod is as good as a wink in a blind horse” came rushing to mind as I read an article at by Morgan Gstalter about an RNC internal poll.  It seems the Republican National Committee (RNC) spent money to find out that […]


The Trump gambit against GOP on Harvey, Irma funding now, debt ceiling, CR later sets up stark political choice for American people

By Bill Wilson The establishment GOP and their domesticated “conservative” pets are in a rage over President Trump’s move to secure relief funding for the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas (and now Irma) by brokering a deal with the Democrats. The President gets the funding now, […]


Hiding the truth, distorting Andrew Jackson’s image

By Bill Wilson Anyone looking for a prime example of why the American people increasingly detest the mainstream media need look no further than the Washington Post’s “reporting” on President Donald Trump’s visit to Nashville on March 15. While many in the insular world of the GOP establishment may not think […]


Thank you, Jill Stein

By Bill Wilson As originally published at Over the long holiday weekend, the radical left and their poodles in the Democrat Party announced a move to force recounts in the Presidential election in three states; Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.  The move, endorsed and supported by Madame Clinton, […]


When you hear them scream, Mr. Trump, you know you’ve hit the mark

By Bill Wilson The level of vitriol and sheer hysteria coming from the various outlets of the establishment press is the best indicator possible that Donald Trump’s message of American sovereignty and the restoration of constitutional government are getting through to the American people. The apologists and […]


Ignore the ankle-biters

By Bill Wilson The globalist establishment is running scared, very scared. How can you tell? It is apparent by the way they are going after Donald Trump. There is no engagement on issues but rather a merciless assault of death by a thousand cuts. Not only does […]


Wilson: Rogue republic: Felonious voting in the Commonwealth

By Bill Wilson As originally published at Actions have consequences – or at least they used to. In the current debt-addled, dependent, increasingly dystopian iteration of our American Republic, accountability has given way to evasion, responsibility has been replaced by relativism and punishments have been pushed aside […]


Cultural Revolution finds its way to Univ. of Missouri

By Bill Wilson There are numerous lessons to be learned from the confrontational protests by black football players to boycott future games at the University of Missouri this week that have culminated in resignation of the school’s president and chancellor.  And, while it is unlikely at best the legacy media will report, let alone even see, what truly happened, it is vital the […]


The Iran vote, Congress’ power outage and Donald Trump

By Bill Wilson Establishment pundits have been desperately trying to explain how Donald Trump has been able to build commanding support that seems to be unfazed by relentless attacks. They confidently tell each other that this is just a summer fling, that the voters will “come home” after […]


Obama’s utopian vision to redraw every neighborhood in America 

By Bill Wilson The far left’s effort to remake America according to its politically correct fantasies continues unabated — even as the U.S. economy groans under the weight of previous failed efforts (and even as supporters of the latest social experiments bemoan prior failures in central planning). […]


Why is the Washington Post attacking entrepreneurship?

By Bill Wilson Any lingering hopes that Jeff Bezos’ purchase of the Washington Post would lead to a more rational and true journalistic approach from the “national paper of record” have been dashed to pieces over the last several months. But nowhere has there been a better […]


Offshore drilling: The eco-radical fiction ensnaring ‘conservative’ politicians

By Bill Wilson Government-run energy policy in this country has been a debacle. From the “green jobs” scam of Left Coast solar companies like Solyndra to the ravaged heartland of Iowa (where government ethanol mandates have done tremendous environmental damage) — the failed central planning and false promises of Washington, D.C. […]


Baltimore: The blindness of the Ivory Tower

By Bill Wilson In the May 1 edition of the Washington Post, an opinion article by overly-credentialed professor of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton Danielle Allen, “Why the dispossessed riot,” calls for “sloughing off” the current understanding of what freedom means and embracing a new, more enlightened “democratic one.” […]


Double standard at Barack Obama’s ‘Injustice’ Department

By Bill Wilson As U.S. Senators take up the nomination of Loretta Lynch for Attorney General, they should keep an eye across the country on the scandal enveloping now-former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber .  At first glance, these two unfolding political dramas might seem as far apart as “the east is from […]


Obamacare fatigue: Why repeal still matters

No Obamacare

By Bill Wilson Type “Obamacare” into any Internet search engine and in less than a third of a second — faster than the snap of your fingers — tens of millions of results will bombard you.  Within these pages are literally billions of words addressing the law […]
