Animotion - Raise Your Expectations Album CoverSo, Trump won. A lot of people are freaking out about this, but I’m actually relieved. Trump and friends fought hard during the campaign. Despite all the rhetoric on both sides, I think the Republicans presented a better future for the United States. That’s why they’ll soon control the Senate, the Congress, the Executive branch and the Judicial branch. Big change is coming. If Trump is true to his word, America is in for good times. What better way to celebrate than with good music?
