My daughter Grace, a 27-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter, weighs in on the presidential race, the Trump and Sanders phenoms, and she makes a November predication. We kick off episode 28 of Scott Ott Show with our first-ever live interview (had a few audio hiccups, but straightened it out around the 6:10 min. mark.) Then, two viewer questions launch us into a passionate tribute to the pursuit of happiness, and of telling the federal government to stick it. And we end with some funny stories and a song.
I also carved out my interview with Grace from the rest, so you can get right to the best part of the show.

I am headed back to Bolivia!
Summer 2013 I had the incredible opportunity to go on a short term missions trip to Bolivia with my church. God has continually put the people of Bolivia on my heart. I am following His voice and going.
I will be serving as an official intern with International Tribal Ministries for 4-6 weeks. My role will be ministering to the people in the unreached tribes in the jungles of Bolivia. Teaching, helping, loving, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I would love your support through prayer and finances. I am hoping to raise $2,300. This will cover a plane ticket, visa, and living expenses while I am serving.
Prayer is uber important…so please pray pray pray!!

Assault on journalist Michelle Fields at Donald Trump event spawns personal attacks on Twitter by Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who witnesses say, manhandled the bruised young reporter. I have worked with Michelle, and have rarely been more angry on video, nor more concerned for the future of our republic. Here’s a link to a story by Katie Pavlich that I mention during this show.
When Trumpians attack! I recount my experience with my most popular Scott Ott Thought ever, that resulted in a barrage of obscene, racist, anti-Semitic insults from supporters of Donald Trump. In this episode, I also talk about what the late Antonin Scalia taught me this week about the Constitution and about life.
Progressives and populists (Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump) are connecting with millions of people around issues like student loan debt, manufacturing jobs, immigration, crony capitalism and racial justice. Do Conservatives, Republicans and other liberty-lovers have something to say about these issues? In this episode of Scott Ott Show (#18), we approach each one from a Constitutional free-market perspective in a way designed to win friends and influence people.
