This is it… Election Day 2020… the climax of one of the most unconventional and tumultuous race seasons in our lifetime.
And even though the major national polls have consistently predicted a Biden landslide victory, more and more folks are coming around to the possibility of a President Trump win.
Of course, I’ve been on record predicting Trump would win re-election.
His supporters tend to be less vocal about their political preferences, so those polls are hard to take seriously. (And let’s not forget how inaccurate they were in 2016…)
But on top of that, I just don’t think things are bad enough – and the American people are dumb enough – to put someone like Senator Kamala Harris one heartbeat away from the presidency.
Now, I could be wrong… Maybe things are that bad – and people want even more Socialism in America.
But the truth is, whether I’m right or wrong… you need to be prepared.
The current environment in this country is so complex, tense, and divided… If Trump wins, you can be sure we will see rioting, looting, and violent protesting.
That’s why businesses all across the country – especially in D.C. – are boarding up their storefront windows, bracing for the worst. Los Angeles and New York City are also taking precautions for violence following the election and its results.
They know the Left gets all crybaby when they don’t get their way… And they’re probably right.
All of those “peaceful protests” we’ve seen so far in 2020 will look like a warm-up act if Trump gets those 270 Electoral College votes.
But let’s say I’m wrong and Biden does pull out a victory. I truly don’t think we’ll see the same amount of violent rioting (although we can probably expect there will be some protesting).
But four years from now, the American people will be worse off.
Your taxes are going to go up… even more handouts are on the way… the economy will probably struggle… and the stock market might fall dramatically.
The main tenants never change with Republicans and Democrats, and in spite of all the arguing and all the fighting, they endorse the same philosophy – Keynesian economics, paper money, deficits, intervention overseas, not caring about civil liberties – so the people always come up short no matter who’s elected.
Of course, whether Trump or Biden wins:
- The budget is not going to get smaller.
- The deficit is not going to shrink.
- The Fed is not going to stop printing money.
Federal debt is set to exceed the size of our entire economy… mind-blowing. The Federal Reserve, as we know, has dropped interest rates to near zero, and Chairman Powell even admits that he expects to keep them that low until 2023 at the earliest.
In fact, the only tool the Fed has left is to print (more) money to prop up the economy, which is exactly what it’s been doing… buying treasuries and mortgages, corporate bonds, even some major ETFs.
Which is why you need to be prepared for the worst. You need to think about your family’s safety… You need to prepare for your family’s survival… You need to be ready for what this means for your investments.
Very few people in Washington are concerned about personal liberty, and if you’re concerned about finances and the well-being of the people, then you have to be concerned about liberty as well, believe it or not.
The purpose of government is to protect liberty… Just think of what it’s done in the last nine months with the coronavirus – almost everything has been to undermine our liberties. And guess what? The country is really, really suffering from it.
But today is your last chance, so I hope you take this seriously.
I recently sat down with Stansberry Research Director Austin Root, who has put together a set of action steps you should take to prepare your portfolio now. He has eight specific stocks that you must buy to profit no matter who wins…
But you’re running out of time. To maximize your gains, these stocks should be purchased before market close today.
You need to take this seriously… You need to be prepared. So I encourage you to take a few minutes and find out what the brilliant financial minds at Stansberry are recommending you do today. Click here for the short video.
