What Bruce Springsteen Says at the start of Livin In The Future is the way I (think) I feel about America

Bruce Springsteen
Introduction to "Livin In The Future"
Charlottesville Virginia April 30, 2008

"this is a song called ´Livin´ In The Future´ but it´s about what´s happening now....along with all the things that we love about America - cheeseburgers, French fries, the Constitution (crowd cheers) Clarence ´Big Man´ Clemons (crowd cheers) ....along with all the things that we love about the place we live, in the last seven years we´ve had to add to the American picture things like illegal wiretapping....an attack on our Constitution, a rollback of civil liberties, rendition....those are the things that ain´t supposed to be happening here that are happening here now....so we plan to do something about it right now....we´re gonna sing about it....as loud as we can.....´´
