What a crazy election… and it’s not over yet!
As I’m writing this, Biden is in the lead with 253 to 214 electoral votes (per the BBC). But Trump is already contesting the election’s legitimacy.
Still, it looks like Biden’s going to win, and if he does, that’s means at least four years of pain for old, wealthy, conservative males (i.e. your target market if you’re a financial copywriter).
So it’s time to dust off and study another Stansberry classic which feels especially relevant right now: “The Third Term”…
This was a big winner circa 2015/16. Written by Aaron Brabham, who was the co-host at Stansberry Radio. So it’s interesting he was also able to write this blockbuster as a “non-copywriter”.
The promo takes an interesting twist that perhaps isn’t too relevant today, but tI believe he Big Idea will still resonate hard during a Biden presidency…

INSIDE: The Secret Plan to Retain Power Through 2020
I didn’t vote for him.
I don’t admire him.
I don’t care for his class warfare politics… or the way he’s lived his life. He never had a real job. He’s never tried to make a payroll or hit a sales goal. Instead, he’s constantly making excuses for other people and himself. He tells one life after another… and then grandstands on this “integrity.”
He’s nothing but a charlatan.
Even so… I know Obama will become the greatest president in U.S. history. Much like Kennedy, this has something to do with his charisma — which I find revolting, but others clearly love. However, that’s not the real reason…
No, a simple secret lies behind Obama’s soaring power, which is still far from its peak.
Even as I write these words, an enormous economic force is building. It’s a force that rivals the scope of every single American boom in our history — from the 1880s steel and railroad boom, to the 1920s automobile boom, to the baby boom of the 1960s and the computer boom of the 80s and 90s…
The force now behind Obama is more powerful than all of these events — combined.
This force will carry Obama back to the presidency in 2012. And yet again in 2016. It’s this force that will carry him into the history books…
This new economic force will change everything about the way our country’s economoy works. It will also reshape the world’s monetary flows… for at least the next 50 years.
It will make millions of Americans vastly wealthier… and improve the standard of living across our entire nation.
But, in the process, I believe it will also make an idol of Mr. Obama…
