Imagine if the GOP cared as much about protecting America's borders as they do about protecting the borders of Ukraine.

From The Daily Mail, "GOP Sen. Wicker suggests US could NUKE Russia over Ukraine invasion and claims 'everything is on the table'":
Sen. Roger Wicker, the number two Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday that President Biden should not 'rule out' military action in Ukraine if Russia invades, including the use of nuclear weapons.

'There's certain things in negotiations that if you're going to be tough that you don't take off the table,' the Mississippi Republican told Fox News' Neil Cavuto in an interview from the Capitol. 'And so I think the president should say that everything is on the table.'

The senator noted that there are already around 200 US National Guard troops on the ground in Ukraine.

'I would not rule out military action,' he continued. 'Military action could mean we stand off with our ships in the Black Sea and we rein destruction on Russian military capability.

'I would not rule out American troops on the ground. You know, we don't rule out first use nuclear action, we don't think it'll happen, but...'

The US owns an estimated 5,600 nuclear warheads, while Russia has 6,257.
How many Mississippians want to have a nuclear war with Russia to defend the borders of Ukraine?

Where does this rank on their priorities list, exactly?
