The horror of storm Sandy's destruction on the East Coast may be an ominous open for next Tuesday's own political election storm.

Or will the election itself prove to be a benign conclusion after a terrifying weather warning; skies of fog with patches of disinterested drizzle.

We have heard a blizzard of hysterical forecasts, the dark warnings of what may lie ahead for America's future under the reign of either Obama or Romney in these next four years.

Will we wake up Wednesday morning to a newly enhanced potential for national and social destruction or will we face a familiar, newly renewed, 4-year steady paced same old unraveling of an America we used to know and love.

This is the question that surrounds the election.  

America is tired.

I can't count the number of smart people who understand that either candidate is wrong for this country.

That Obama is better for women.

That it is not helpful or enlivening to watch cable news commentators yell and shill for their candidates.

That it is not "all good" anymore, if it ever had been. (Enough with the promotion of the lie that "it's all good"!)

That the women's movement has dissolved as a united force, and there is now in fact an opening for an American

regime that erases all progress in women's rights that were hard won and forged in these last 5 decades.

That Obama's economic circle is the same crowd from Bush's regime.

From a distance, it is tempting to feel compassion for a weary young President, yet one who promised real change while actually lacking the fire and the guts to instigate that change.

From a distance, it is tempting to believe that candidate Mitt Romney, as a businessman, may know more about economics at a time when that is what is needed to help Americans survive.

Yet, here is a man who did not publicly scorn his fellow Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, for wanting to make rape an act of God's intent.

See what I mean?   Exhausting.
