Dave Mustaine: 'It Looks Like We're Sprinting Down The Path To Socialism'
"Metal Zone" host Nikki Blakk of the 107.7 The Bone radio station conducted an interview with Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine on August 31, 2010 when the band played at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, California during the "American Carnage" tour with Slayer and Testament. You can now watch the chat below. When asked if he was still "avid in following politics," Mustaine replied, "I have tried not to say anything right now because I'm so freaked out about what's happening to our country. I mean, it looks like we're sprinting down the path to socialism and I don't understand where the American people are right now. You wanna impeach a guy for getting a blowjob yet you have a guy that's destroying our country and you just let him run rampant. "I don't understand that. I know a generation ago that this wouldn't have happened. It seems like we're just like I said sprinting towards socialism, and I don't wanna be a socialist. I like living in a free America. The idea that if you have a chicken in a democracy is that it's your chicken; if you're in socialism, it's everybody's chicken. It's like a communist country. And the idea of the U.S.S.R.A [laughs], it just doesn't have a good ring to it. "My God, look at the marketplace right now. This president promised 500,000 new jobs, we have 500,000 less jobs, so he missed that by one million. And I just think, 'God, how can you be so out of touch?'" Megadeth's "Rust In Peace Live" CD which captures the final night of the band's historic month-long "Rust In Peace" 20th anniversary tour sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 161 on The Billboard 200 chart. Meanwhile, the DVD version of "Rust In Peace Live" shifted around 2,600 units to land at No. 3 on the Top Music Videos chart.
Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.
