Et tu, Brute?
 
Brutus, one of the conspirators and assassins of Julius Caesar has a bad reputation in history. But why? Wasn't he trying to save the Roman Empire from dictatorship? Had they succeeded in preserving the Senate as the dominant power, wouldn't Rome have been better off than with later Emperors such as Caligula, Nero, and others?

What do you think?

Caesar Augustus should win #2 in a landslide. Re: #1, the Senate had become too bloated and corrupt...IMO, Caesar was a good thing.
