People like to think that terrible things are right around the corner.
Regardless of who we have for president, or anything like that, the US has good geography, the worlds strongest currency, and i don't think either of those things are gonna go away anytime soon. We do have a debt problem but our debt-to-GDP ratio is acceptable (countries like Ireland and Japan have much higher proportionate amounts of debt).
Funny thing is though is when you look back at old online news articles, people have been claiming the US is "on the verge of collapse" for a very long time now. Same with those "WW3 is right around the corner" news articles you see all the time. It's nothing. People just like to worry, and the media is gonna say what they have to, to get views.
