Bernanke Fights Ron Paul In Congress: Gold Isn’t Money
Jul. 13 2011 – 11:26 am

*** begin quote ***

“Is gold money?” he asked. Clearly bothered, Bernanke told the representative, “No. It’s a precious metal.”

*** end quote ***

“Money is a matter of functions four, a medium, a measure, a standard, a store.” He repeated that four times like poetry. “Six Characters in Money: Portable – Durable – Divisible – Uniformity – Limited Supply – Acceptability.” — CHURCH 10●19●62 (Vol 1) 978-0-557-08387-9 page 110

Clearly, the Federal Reserve Banknote is NOT a store of value. 95% loss of value from 1970 to 2000.

But, Ron Paul has to admit that gold isn’t either. It’s not a medium of exchange. Was; could be; ain’t.

Argh!
