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.
