I believe that is exactly what they think. And considering who people elect to office, and then either through indifference or ignorance, support the worst the USA has to offer, thinking we are stupid sounds to me like the right way to describe it.
I beg to differ. Actually they believe we are too far down the evolutionary (financial) scale to give a toss what you or we think. They just want the money - and the power. They don't want a lot of it, they don't even want most of it, they want ALL of it.
Part of it is true though. People are stupid. We prove it every day we put up with it. Never mind wars against NK or IS or the likes. Have a war against billionaires. Quickest way to reset the planet.
