Something to think about

And exactly who is going to have your back against the corporations? Let's take a trip back in the Way Back Machine to the vote to approve the "every-day-is-Opposite-day" Class Action Fairness Act of 2005. You remember this bill, don't you? This is the one that gave corporations protection under the guise of "tort reform." This bill could force many state-level class action lawsuits into federal court, possibly leaving multi-state suits out in the cold.

I'm already firmly in the Hillary camp, but the next time someone waxes poetic about Obama as the messiah I am totally pointing them right here.
