Synopses & Reviews
America has two economic systems: capitalism for the rich and socialism for the poor.
This double-minded approach seems to keep the poor enslaved to poverty while the rich get richer. Let's face it, despite its $400 billion price tag, welfare isn't working. The solution, asserts Star Parker, is a faith-based, not state-sponsored, plan.
In "Uncle Sam's Plantation," she offers five simple yet profound steps that will allow the nation's poor to go from entitlement and slavery to empowerment and freedom. Parker shares her own amazing journey up from the lower rungs of the economic system and addresses the importance of extending the free market system to this neglected group of people. Emphasizing personal initiative, faith, and responsibility, she walks readers toward releasing the hold poverty has over their lives.
"Casts new light on the redemptive power of freedom." --Rush Limbaugh
Uncle Sam's Plantation is an incisive look at how government manipulates, controls, and ultimately devastates the lives of the poor--and what Americans must do to stop it. Once a hustler and welfare addict who was chewed up and spit out by the ruthless welfare system, Star Parker sheds much needed light on the bungled bureaucratic attempts to end poverty and reveals the insidious deceptions perpetrated by self-serving politicians.
"Star Parker rocks the world. She is an iconoclast that must be listened to and reckoned with." ?Sean Hannity

"Star Parker's new book brings us back to eternal truths--faith, family, love, and responsibility." ?Dr. Laura Schlessinger
"Casts new light on the redemptive power of freedom." ?Rush Limbaugh
