While I take issue with your statement of the US being the best country in the world, I agree that getting educated on the markets in times likes this and staying the course is very wise. If you have done your homework and are in a good asset allocation then there is nothing to do when the market drops except go out on a good hike or read a book. Then again, if you can squeeze a little extra from your budget, it is better to invest more when the market is on sale then whe it is at its heights. Perhaps we just need better marketing.
