"President Obama believes that our role as leader in the world is a thing of the past. He's intent on shrinking our military capacity at a time when the world is facing rising threats. I will insist on a military so powerful no one would ever think of challenging it," he said.

"President Obama has adopted a policy of appeasement and apology. I will speak out for those seeking freedom, and I will stand shoulder to shoulder with our friends around the world," said the former governor of Massachusetts.

"President Obama wants to fundamentally transform America and make it something perhaps we wouldn't recognise. I want to restore to America the values and principles that made us the hope of the Earth, and I'll do it," Romney said.

"Our plans protect freedom and opportunity, and our blueprint is the Constitution of the United States. Together, we will build an America where hope is a new job with a paycheck, not a faded word on an old bumper sticker," he said.Romney said that if elected, he would repeal the healthcare policy of Obama.

"President Obama's view of a free economy is to send your money to his friends. My vision for a free enterprise economy is to return entrepreneurship and the genius and creativity to the American people," he said.

"On one of the most personal matters of our lives, our health care, President Obama would turn decision-making over to government bureaucrats. He forced through Obamacare, and I will repeal it," he said.

"You know, like his colleagues in the faculty lounge who think they know better... President Obama demonises and denigrates almost every sector of our economy. I will make America the most attractive place in the world for entrepreneurs, for innovators, for job-creators, and unlike the other people running for president, I know how to do that because I've done it before," he said.

Romney said America is still out there. "We believe in that America. We still believe in the America that is the land of opportunity and a beacon of freedom. We believe in the America that challenges each of us to be bigger and better than ourselves. This election, let's fight for the America we love. We believe in America," he said.
