I'm well aware of that. You're more than welcome to prove anything I say wrong.
If you can't, then maybe it's you that's not as smart as you think.

Other than the fact that you keep saying how smart you are and how others are dumb? Nope, I have no proof whatsoever.

I never said I was sooo smart. I care less about being smart and more about being right. So if you can't disprove me, I don't really care what you have to say.

I'm not even sure what I would be disproving. Just pointing out that arrogance is not a good personality trait to have.

Even though I dislike Trump, I would never characterize him as simply "stupid". You have to be crafty to win a political office. AOC did it by energizing the minority and middle class voters, that is why she is popular. Her constituents believe in her fervor to defend their interests and that is reflected in Fox News and Trump focusing on her even though she's just a freshman. She is a sign of things to come and that is what really scares you.

What is scary is that the cocktail waitress is very very stupid, and those that voted for her are even more stupid. Cuba, Venezuela. Bring it on Bernie Boy.

You brought up Dunning-Kruger which implies you think I'm dumb but under the impression that I'm smart.
If you based it off one comment about AOC, then it's definitely not me that overestimates their intelligence. That would be you.
If you're basing it off numerous posts, then surely there's plenty of things for you to disprove.
You can choose a couple, disprove me, and I'll concede your point.

But you can't because I'm not wrong.

She's actually not stupid. And, I think that's what truly terrifies you more than anything.

What's really "stupid" are people who get wet dreams about being billionaires someday, so they vote in people who give more and more away to the wealthy and politically-connected, to the detriment of the rest of us.

And, this is despite warnings from billionaires themselves who cannot fathom why the populace is that stupid?

Because you keep saying that either one person is stupid(AOC) or that ~700k people are stupid(her congressional district).

Consider Occam's Razor. Is it possible that so many people are wrong, or that you are wrong? If you are right/smart/righetous/etc, then why don't you run for a congressional seat here in Vegas and show us how it's done?

The answer is, it's not easy to do it. It requires people believing in you and more so for people to like you.

Her district is chop full of idiots. NYC is just one giant cesspool or morons.

I don't want a congressional seat. I am not willing to do the things one is required to do to get a seat. I disagree with what must be done.

Her IQ is 2 digits. I'm scared of her because it's bad enough the average person has power in congress. When the really dumb get in there and start pushing things like socialism, we all suffer.
Socialism has failed all over the planet. Much smarter people have tried. It is an abject failure.
it doesn't work.

You are being absurd EA. There is no question she is very bright. Very like in the upper 1%. She even finished second in one of the Intel competitions in high school. She graduated Boston University *** Laud.
