Wil Armstrong's Letter to Voters

  • 15 Comments
  • by: ArmstrongforCongress

(And Wil makes 3 out of 4 – promoted by DavidThi808)

Dear Fellow Republican:

With about a week before the Republican Primary Election to replace retiring Congressman Tancredo, I wanted to write you a letter and ask for your vote.

I need your vote to help revitalize and restore our conservative principles in Washington and to get Congress back on track. I need your vote to send a career businessman to Congress to help change the way Congress does business.

The latest polls show that this race is a dead heat between my main competitor and me. It’s going to be a photo finish, but the good news is our campaign is surging. The momentum is on our side.

You see, I believe we need more real-world experience in Congress… not more career politicians. We’re not lacking political experience in Washington.

Look at what political experience has gotten us:

•           Gas prices that are breaking the family budget;

•           A Congress that won’t secure our borders;

•           Runaway federal spending that’s leaving our children a legacy of debt;

•           Earmarks that are corrupting both political parties; and,

•           A tax code that’s hurting America’s prosperity and future.

Congress is broken. What we need to fix it is more real-world business experience.

I imagine a Congress with more doctors, ranchers, teachers, and small businessmen and women… citizen legislators who are more interested in getting the important work done for       our conservative principles than simply going from one political job to the next.

We can do better!

I am very grateful for the more than 6000 people (a record in Colorado) who signed my petition to put me on the ballot. We’ve had more than 350 volunteers active in our campaign. Why?

Because people are tired of politics as usual and career politicians who have lost their way.

Every day, we have more people walking neighborhoods, talking to their friends, making phone calls, putting up yard signs, and emailing their contacts…. all to help me get elected to Congress.

I’m proud to have received the endorsements of Governor Mitt Romney, US Senator Wayne Allard, former Governor Bill Owens, and our Attorney General John Suthers. These leaders know that times have changed, that our country and party needs new leadership, and that sending more real-world experience to Congress matters.

As your next Congressman, I will bring my real-world business experience to Washington and help frame long-term, strategic energy policies that will help bring down the price of gas. I will confront the big-spenders in Washington and will fight to curb runaway spending. I will work to end pork barrel spending and earmarks.

My priorities will include tough policies to insure a safe and secure America:  securing our borders, enforcing our existing immigration laws, and opposing amnesty or other rewards for illegal activities. I will strongly support our military and will fund the work of our sons and daughters who serve our country in the military with such great honor.

I will work to keep Colorado special. I will promote our family values including life and traditional marriage. I will champion the Second Amendment and will support the constitutional right that gives all law-abiding citizens the right to buy and carry guns. I will fight to preserve our quality of life through good stewardship of our resources including water and our forests.

Help me make sure we have more career business leaders in Washington – and not more career politicians. I need your vote.

Please keep Kristy, me, and our kids — and all of us who are running for office — in your thoughts and prayers as we enter the final days of this election.

With best regards,

Wil Armstrong

  1. I imagine a Congress with more doctors, ranchers, teachers, and small businessmen and women… citizen legislators who are more interested in getting the important work done for       our conservative principles than simply going from one political job to the next.

    This is totally unrealistic. We might as well start over from scratch–does Wil Armstrong promote some sort of agrarian anrachy? That would be like firing the board of directors of a Fortune 500 company and replacing them with whoever happened to be walking down the street. That logic may have worked for Jefferson in the 18th century, but how can that possibly work for Colorado in the 21st century. Back when I was a Republican, this kind of garbage would have made me vote for Coffman or Ward in a second.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people of all walks of life being in public service. I think that teachers, doctors and other professional people who make it to the halls of Government are to be applauded. I just think that if you took away all the other people: the John Conyers, the Ted Kennedys, the Joe Bidens… hell, even the John McCains of Congress–those who know how the rules work, government would be even more inefficient.

    1. with a kindly veterinarian in the Senate? Least effective, most potted member of the Colorado delegation in recent history. Wil’s right. We can do a lot better than that. How about voting for someone who’s demonstrated an ounce of political skill — other than having the good fortune to grow up under the roof of a career politician?

  2. During the debate last night Secretary Coffman and Senator Ward discussed the experience gained having served in combat.

    Wil responded eloquently by saying:  “Hey, hey we had some pretty wild times back at the frat house so I can relate”  

    This guy is dumb.

    It did look like he had a couple of tequila shots before going on Fox 31. I thought he might fall of his chair.

    Wil and Will two frat boys who should stick to partying.

  3. No sir Mr. Armstrong—with what you state, I would not vote for you in a thousand years.  I was the poster-boy Republican for 45 years, going to state conventions in Colorado and New Mexico.  And I finally got so sick of the “family un-values” of the “conservative” morons like yourself and your competition, that I had the gumption enough to switch parties recently.  Count on this ex-Republican to vote Democratic all the way and feel very good about it.

  4. Gee Wil must know he is losing and Daddy thought a “heartfelt” letter will win it for dummy Wil.

    Wil’s Father was a Career Politician so what is Wil  Criticizing Mike Coffman for?  

    Let us face it Wil WANTS to be a Career Politician but the 6th Republicans will never give it to wimpy Wil.  

    Vote for Mike!

  5. ….I assume you have made a pledge to serve only a few terms in Congress, right?  So as to avoid becoming a career politician?  So what is the maximum number of terms you’ll serve?  

    Remember that’s what Bob S. did.  You like him, right?  You’re supporting him in the Senate race?  So you agree that his term limits pledge was honorable and necessary, right?  So, what is your term limits pledge?

    thanks and good luck!

    J.

  6. If Wil’s last name wasn’t Armstrong, would anyone even be paying attention to his campaign?  

    Wil says he wants to change the way Congress does things in Washington?  How does he propose doing that as a freshman member of the minority party?  If he is elected, the concerns of Colorado’s 6th CD will never be heard.

    Wil says we don’t need more “career politicians” in Washington, as does Democrat Will Shafroth.  But Armstrong seems to have lined up the endorsements of every “career politician” on his dad’s Roledex… including one from out of state.  Mitt Romney appears to be doing a favor for Wil’s dad.  I don’t believe Mitt endorsed Wil because the former Massachusetts governor discovered Wil’s “brilliance” on his own.    

    It is getting tiresome that wealthy people think their first public office should be a congressman, U.S. senator, governor, or president.  Wil didn’t bother to “waste” any of his time serving our nation in its military.  At his age, one would have expected he would have sought public office before to show what he can do for the people.

    GOP voters are not just looking for another Republican to replace Tom Tancredo.  They want the best one possible.  Young and untested, Wil Armstrong is clearly not that choice.

  7. “It is getting tiresome that wealthy people think their first public office should be a congressman, U.S. senator, governor, or president.  Wil didn’t bother to “waste” any of his time serving our nation in its military.  At his age, one would have expected he would have sought public office before to show what he can do for the people.”

    Very true

    Just the guy to vote for if the size of your wallet is what matters most to you.
