My name is Mike Sargent. I am 24 years old, on my way into the United States Air Force (shaddup about the bike test, we don't do that anymore...). Until my entry into Basic Training, I plan to continue to work for the Media Research Center ( I am a pragmatic conservative, meaning that I pursue conservatism (the goal) pragmatically (the means to the end). In this case, the end does justify the means. This viewpoint differs from the RINO perspective of conservative pragmatism, which is the use of conservatism as a means to pragmatic ends. The pursuit of power is a goal unworthy of my effort; thus, RINOs are unworthy of my effort. I am an American Airman. Wingman, Leader, Warrior. I will never leave an Airman behind. I will never falter. And I will not fail.
