It's really not that hard. Become a fireman. Run for an office. Get a pension.
Do you have a pension system where you work? My staff did. I contributed a percentage of their pay to a 401 K and they had the opportunity to match it. They were all smart enough and talented enough to know social security isn't a real pension system.
I live on my 401 K returns. I earned that benefit because that's how I set up my company. People that work for cities, states, etc... took a different path. You can too.
