These days, there isn't a week that goes by where Dave Mustaine doesn't make a controversial political statement. On December 1st at a gig in Salt Lake City, the Megadeth front man repeated the (proven inaccurate) statistic that Obama has incurred more debt during his time as president than all of the previous US presidents combined. What's more, Mustaine then told fans: "It's time for our f--king revolution."
Mustaine's speech was as follows:
"Anybody that knows me knows that I have a way of getting myself in trouble in that the First Amendment doesn't apply to Dave Mustaine. Seems like the f--kers in the world can say whatever they want, but I say something, I get in trouble. See, if I say something like, the president right now, who I won't mention by name because I promised myself I would never say his name again, but that this guy has borrowed more money than since George Washington to George W."
"What, are we stupid? Now, based on the thickness of a hundred-dollar bill, if you stacked one of those on top of another one, it would be 11,077 miles in the f--king atmosphere, the debt that this f--king country has right now because of this government. 11,077 miles' worth of hundred-dollar bills up into the sky. And guess who has to pay that: you and me. It's time for our f--king revolution."
