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.

UNCLE SAM'S PLANTATION STAR PARKER Slavery still thrives in this country-but today, the poor are the slaves, and Uncle Sam is the "massa"! This book is an incisive look at how government manipulates, controls, and ultimately devastates the lives of the poor-and what we as Americans must do to stop it. Once a hustler and welfare-addict herself, Star Parker sheds much-needed light on the bungled bureaucratic attempts to end poverty and reveals the insidious deceptions perpetrated by self-serving politicians: "The liberal establishment are involved in the slave trade, as surely as if they had put the chains on the people themselves. We work the ghettos instead of the fields, dutifully putting 'massa' back in the Senate or House of Representatives." Argued with the fresh perspective, hard-won intelligence, and fierce yet compassionate heart of a woman who has been chewed up and spit out by our country's ruthless welfare system, this book lays out a far more constructive, empowering plan to transcend poverty that returns dignity to the poor-encouraging faith, individual responsibility, and personalized treatment. "More government will never be the right answer," claims Parker. "We the people must come together, face the ugly realities of the social climate of America with honesty and common sense, and gradually peel the reins of control over poverty from the hands of government and divisive political organizations."
