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. Letís face it, despite its $400 billion price tag, welfare isnít working.

The solution, asserts Star Parker, is a faith-based, not state-sponsored, plan. In Uncle Samís Plantation, she offers five simple yet profound steps that will allow the nationís 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.

Overview

"The welfare system had some of its teeth taken out in 1996 under the welfare reform put forward by the Republicans in Congress, but the monster is far from dead. Time limits and work requirements are a step in the right direction, but the culture of Uncle Sam's Plantation is fed by the misguided policies of the left. As long as there are liberal ideologues in the halls of power, there is likely to be a long hard battle ahead for those of us committed to seeing poor people emancipated from a paternalistic system that robs them of their initiative, their freedom, and ultimately their hope for the future." P.97

Black Culture

"Black reality is a mirror image reflecting back on America and in this sense we are paying for the sins of our fathers. The very fact that Americans tolerate taxes to support countless illegitimate children rather than identify and deal with root causes is proof that our priorities are in desperate need of realignment."

"The pulsating primitive rhythms of rap music simply reflect the truths that are transmitted to blacks through the wafer-thin veneer of popular American culture. With all the subtlety of a sledgehammer our youth are bludgeoned with the message that it's all about money, power, and sex. Illegitimacy, youth crime, and illiteracy rates make it abundantly clear that our children are getting the message."

Sean Hannity


Star Parker rocks the world. She is an iconoclast that must be listened to and reckoned with.



Rush Limbaugh


Daniel Patrick Moynihan's identification, in 1965, of the self-destructive roots of the Welfare State was prophetic. Star Parker's new book seizes on this theme, adds her personal sense of "been there and done that" and casts new light on the redemptive power of freedom.


George Gilder


In Uncle Sam's Plantation, Star Parker has written her declaration of independence from the grand illusions, slippery safety nets and moral muddles of the Welfare State. In this compelling and inspirational book, she presents a devastating critique of the socialist plans of the welfare bureaucrats and blasts into orbit her fireworks of faith, family and freedom like an angelic avenger.



Larry Kudlow


Star Parker's important new book helps advance the understanding-critical for all Americans-that prosperity does not come from government and politics, but results from men and women of character and high moral fiber living and working in freedom.


Rosey Grier


I have known Star Parker for almost 20 years. Her background gives her the experience to challenge us to get off the fence and get involved in creating a better society for all. I admire her for speaking up and expressing her fresh and compelling ideas. She is not striving to be popular; she is striving to be right. We all should be open to read and to learn from Uncle Sam's Plantation.
