There is more than one reason to be wary today. Its Super Tuesday II and, yes, it is the Ides of March - the day Julius Caesar was assassinated by a coalition of his friends and family.
Butt thats not the only significant political take-down that took place on March 15; in 1917 Czar Nicholas II was forced to abdicate his throne thus ending the 304-year-old Romanov dynasty that ushered in Bolshevik rule. He and his family are taken captive and later executed before a firing squad.
So a little heads up for politicians and proletariats alike: when the people finally get fed up enough they take matters into their own hands. And that doesnt always work out so well either so lets be careful out there.
The Democrats have their own kind of quandary; they have to choose between an old socialist and an even older socialist. The Republican options are less clear. Removing one Caesar wont necessarily solve Romes problem:
The men who murdered Caesar considered themselves as liberators of the republic. Whatever may have been their motives, they seem to have taken little thought as to how Rome would be governed after they had killed their tyrant. If they thought that the senate would take up the powers it had lost, and successfully rule the republic, they were grievously mistaken. The only leading man of the senate who had survived the last civil war was Cicero; but Cicero with all his learning and eloquence could not take the place of Caesar. What Rome needed was what the liberators had taken from her, a master mind of broad views and of great executive power. We need not be surprised that the death of Caesar was followed by confusion and dismay.
And we all know how badly the Bolshevik Revolution turned out:
So if youre voting today please beware the Ides of March. And choose wisely, weed-hopper,
Because elections have consequences.
Now get out there and seize the day as it is the only March 15, 2016 youll ever have.

True, although don’t forget that the MARCH revolution in Russia was the “democratic” revolution that brought in Kerensky. It wasn’t til the Red October that Lenin and his creeps took over. But, yah, Nick was booted in March.
If you gave Lennin a shave some glasses and a few years in that photo he would look just like comrade Bernie.
I feel like the American people are being stabbed by the politicians.
I propose making March 15th a national holiday; Tar and Feather Day. Grab the lousiest congresscritter of the previous year and tar and feather its ass on the Washington Mall. The state from which the pos came from can vote on a replacement. Pretty soon, I would imagine the will of the people would be evident in DC.
