No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, by Mitt Romney

Running for president of the United States is an extraordinary experience… We ultimately lost 418,000 men and women… There are a number of thoughtful people around the world who don’t welcome America’s strength… Does America make mistakes? America is unique in the history of the world… America… The United States is unique… America’s strategic defense relies on credible nuclear deterrence… America is a sea power… America alone is strong… The objective of the United States of America is strength, not popularity… America consistently underperforms its soft-power potential…America’s consumer market is the world’s largest… It is long past time for America to strengthen and effectively deploy our soft power… Astonishingly well… The United States has never wanted to impose itself on the world. No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed… Millions have lost their health insurance… Prior to that time, the United States was the world’s largest exporter; today China is… America is freedom, and freedom must be strong.

We’re a nation of entrepreneurs… Americans are a religious people… We cannot lead the family of nations if we fail the family here at home… I remember being asked… “Do you believe in UFOs? Do you support the secret government plan to unite the United States and Mexico in a single country called ‘Americo’?”… The costs to the country are large. Union pension obligations will bankrupt states and cities… America!
