I would’ve voted for Armstrong.

See, my understanding of Armstrong’s conflicting speeches is that, when he’s talking about controlling the masses and rebooting the War Economy before you fight Excelsus, he’s just keeping up his political persona – Kayfabe, if you will.
But after you defeat Excelsus he drops his facade he tells you about his real plan. After getting elected by kick-starting the economy with a “Second War on Terror”, he promptly intends to tear down the system, stop the war, and rebuild America in the shape of a Social Darwinist Utopia – the strong climbing to the top on the shoulders on the weak. Your own power and ability is all that matters. No more politicians and pointless wars. No more bureaucracy or democracy. Order through Anarchy.
Not to mention, the ending scene reflects Big Boss’ defeat of Gene at the end of Peace Walker; just like how Gene passed on the Philosopher’s Legacy to Big Boss and told him to try to uphold The Boss’ ideals in his own way, Armstrong tells Raiden to take care of America and the world in his own way. And considering that was the point Big Boss started to become a villain and set up Outer Heaven… it kind of implies bad things about Raiden in Revengeance 2: The Revengening.
