The legal tender payments are not lawful payments. The debt still exists. If you are not using lawful money, there is no lawful payment.

You give me a promise to pay me for the hamburger today. On Tuesday, you come back and give me a $5.00, unredeemed Federal Reserve Note, which I ACCEPT FOR FACE VALUE.

The "debt" between you and I is discharged, but since the hamburger had actual physical value as food, and the FRN you gave has an actual value of ZERO and has interest on it, I have gained nothing.

If you didn't think that the Federal Reserve Note was worth more than the hamburger, why would you agree to exchange the hamburger for it? It seems to me that in this deal, the customer values the hamburger more highly than the note, and the vendor values the note more highly than the hamburger. They trade, and now both are better off.

It is the illusion of value. Lets face it, if Crude oil was not exclusively priced and traded in US Dollar values, it would have very little market value.

In the end, any money only has the value you put in it. Now, in the united States it is a little different, because congress has the lawful authority to "coin money" set the value of those coins. The law of the land and all that.
