Dr. Paul asked The Bernanke what was his definition of a dollar.

The Bernanke answered, "My definition of the dollar is what it can buy. Consumers don't want to buy gold. They want to buy food and gasoline and clothes and all the other things that are in the consumer basket."


And The Bernanke still refuses to give a clear, concise and honest answers to THE straight-forward questions, "What is The Bernanke's definition of a US dollar ?" and "Where in all of the Code is the actual measurement stated of one US dollar ?"

A example of a clear, concise and honest answer to Dr. Paul's question from The Bernanke would have been something along the lines of;

One US dollar is equal to 0.00031 troy ounces of gold minted by the US mint to 0.999 percent purity. This measurement can be found on page 1029 in the third paragraph.

Bernanke did answer it. It’s the “consumer basket”. It’s not defined in statute, nor does it need to be.

But Bernanke is right. I don’t want to buy gold. And I certainly don’t want gold speculators determining the cost of my food.
