Volunteer Firefighters & Politicians ~ How Do They Compare?
One does the job as a civic duty with no personal gain – the other receives big personal gain.
One receives little to no compensation – the other receives a nice wage with a lifetime pension.
One spends nothing to get elected – the other spends a fortune.
One has goals to save property and lives – the other has monetary goals for a select few.
One risks life to do the job – the other simply goes to meetings.
Is it any wonder we trust one a bit more than the other?
