"I listen a little to the Democrats and if one of them gets elected, we are going on defense," Giuliani continued. "We will wave the white flag on Iraq. We will cut back on the Patriot Act, electronic surveillance, interrogation and we will be back to our pre-Sept. 11 attitude of defense."He then didn't back down when a reporter challenged him.
He added: "The Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us."
"America will safer with a Republican president."He wasn't through yet.
"This war ends when they stop coming here to kill us!" Giuliani said. "Never ever again will this country ever be on defense waiting for (terrorists) to attack us if I have anything to say about it. And make no mistake, the Democrats want to put us back on defense!"Before the Democrats turned into the party of appeasers, JFK used to stand up to the threats facing the country. Today, sadly, only Joe Lieberman does.
Giuliani said terrorists "hate us and not because of anything bad we have done; it has nothing to do with Israel and Palestine. They hate us for the freedoms we have and the freedoms we want to share with the world."
Giuliani continued: "The freedoms we have are in conflict with the perverted, maniacal interpretation of their religion." He said Americans would fight for "freedom for women, the freedom of elections, freedom of religion, and the freedom of our economy."
Addressing the terrorists directly, Giuliani said: "We are not giving that up and you are not going to take it from us!"
