8. Fine, but we should do less looking a gift horse in the mouth.

A Republican who values his or her country more than the idiot in the White House is fine with me.

We're experiencing, as a nation, the worst threat to our country since the Cuban Missile Crisis, or perhaps since World War II.

In the latter case, we didn't spend the period between 1941 and 1945 cursing Stalin and his goals. We worked with him, because we wanted to win the war first and fight the political battles after it.

We conceivably might have won World War II without the Russians, but it's quite possible that our casualties might have been as high as theirs.

They lost 20 million people.

The reason that the concentration camps were liberated in 1945 rather than in 1952 (if ever) has a lot to do with working with a former and future enemy.
