Bill Murphy, former pro-football player and Wall Streeter has been leading the charge for over a decade. He claims that the precious metals markets have been fixed by the government, for the purpose of propping up the bankrupt fiat money system. The country and the world have been living beyond their means for decades and now it’s all coming home to roost. Politicians and the political system have failed to stem the world’s desire for ever bigger and more powerful government. Other than Congressman Ron Paul, no one has stepped up to the plate to make the case for free markets and limited government.
Originally, when Bill started his movement, he was treated as a conspiracy crank and was fitted for a tin foil hat by the mainstream media. Thirteen years later, his foresight has become accepted wisdom. According to Bill, it is clear that governments will do anything they can to avoid making the tough decisions and if that means manipulating precious metals’ prices, so be it. Pretty soon, we’ll find out if Bill is right. Just keep watching the prices of gold and silver and you will too.
