Today I covered Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Capitol Hill. Republican Presidential hopeful Ron Paul served on the committee that Bernanke was testifying in front of as well. I know Paul has a strong and loyal following, but I was unaware of all of his thoughts on all things — so I was shocked to learn Paul is a supporter of precious metal investing. I’m an avid listener to Dave Ramsey, a personal finance radio talk show host – who has made a pretty clear-cut statement about gold. It seems pretty clear to me that the current high price of precious metals has just been inflated by fear – So it took me by surprise when I heard Ron Paul start talking in the hearing about his thoughts on gold and silver!
