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.

Democrats are on Dangerous Ground with Non-College Minorities Too  

By Bill Wilson The Democratic party’s issues appealing to working class white voters are well documented, but new analysis shows the radical left is isolating itself from working class minorities without a college education too. There have been warning signs for years now that the disastrous economic and social agenda adopted by party elites […]


Did Trump Pave a Path with Hispanics and Low Propensity Voters that few Can Replicate?

By Bill Wilson The Hispanic shift away from the Democratic Party – and specifically the dangerously incompetent Biden administration – is something Americans for Limited Government Foundation has been watching closely. New polling shows Biden’s approval rating is continuing to sink, and more Hispanics now want Trump […]


Public has Turned Against the War Hawks Drumming for Intervention in Ukraine

  By Bill Wilson Public support for arming and funding military operations in Ukraine has dropped substantially from a year ago, and public opinion has turned decidedly in favor of non-intervention. A new AP poll shows over half of Americans reject outfitting Ukraine with weapons and sending financial aid […]


Economy, Education and Election Security are the Focus of Latin-American citizens   

By Bill Wilson The Hispanic vote is in flux, with the 2022 midterms delivering mixed results for both parties. On the one hand, Republicans fell short of lofty goals in Arizona and South Texas, where immigration dominated the political narrative last fall. On the other hand, Hispanics […]


When It Comes to Younger Voters Gender is The Dividing Variable to Watch

By Bill Wilson A favorite argument the left propagates is that demographics are destiny, and that a tidal wave of young left-wing voters will erode GOP margins beyond repair. The argument that demographics are destiny is of course inescapable, but the argument that these demographics favor the […]


The Republican Party is moving toward a true opposition party, and Biden fears it

By Bill Wilson The time-worn tactic of the establishment Left is to always blame their opponents of their own crimes.  While it may appear childish – Mom, I didn’t break the window, the other kid did it! – it works or at least it eases the minds […]


President Trump should issue the Buy American executive order to end China’s control of our medicines

By Bill Wilson With all we are facing today, with all the fear and outright transformation of our entire society, it might seem odd that a group of medical organizations would sign a letter opposing American independence in the production of medicines and medical equipment.  You would […]


Why is the corporate media taking China’s side on the origins of the virus and silencing President Trump?

By Bill Wilson The words “treason” and “traitor” are derived from the Latin tradere, “to deliver or hand over”.  In modern times, “traitor” and “treason” are mainly used with reference to a person helping an enemy in time of war or conflict.  From these it is crystal clear […]


Globalization helped export China’s coronavirus. Never again.

By Bill Wilson In the current environment, something not seen in America in living memory, the fear and panic of the Chinese coronavirus make it near impossible to look ahead.  But while everyone who can is working on the “here and now,” it is vital that we […]


Eric Holder and Wapo threaten U.S. Attorney John Durham for looking into spygate

By Bill Wilson We’ve all heard the joke.  A thuggish looking guy walks into a business he is trying to shakedown and says, “Nice little store you have here.  It’d be a shame if something happened to it.” Wink, wink. The message is crystal clear; do what […]


You’re either with the globalist elite, or you’re for restoring America. Pick a side.

By Bill Wilson It always makes me chuckle when I see a writer at the Washington Post attack something or someone for being “Soviet style.” They have been doing it a lot lately. What is so funny about the slur, after all, is that for generations it […]


To truly understand American politics, you need a translator

By Bill Wilson To truly understand American politics, you need a translator. Recently we were given a rare inside glance at the true meaning of politics in America, not the sugar-coated day-dreams of the establishment old-guard or the spitting rage and indignation of the professional Left.  Instead […]


Hunter Biden may have to pay back the millions he made, which were stolen from the people of Ukraine, under U.S. law

By Bill Wilson The one, overriding impression that Democrats, media and the left have left on many Americans after two weeks of the “impeachment” circus” is not what they intended. They have left the unmistakable impression of fear; near-panic levels of terror.  And from what is now […]


No, Generation Z is not less patriotic or religious

By Bill Wilson A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll is being trumpeted by the mainstream media as proof that Generation Z is less patriotic and less religious than older generations. The pollsters asked age groups to rank how important vague, entirely subjective terms like ‘patriotism’ and ‘religion’ […]


No, AOC is not the new normal and young people are not socialists

By Bill Wilson and Manzanita Miller The Atlantic article last week on young voters painted a gloomy picture for conservatives, claiming that a majority of Generation Z — young people born after the mid-nineties — hold far-left views in alignment with those of democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The authors […]
