Uncle Sam’s Plantation by Star Parker
Star Parker, a miracle through the welfare system tells her story of change from poverty and liberal ideology. The author also details how she believes how many America’s poor are destined to stay poor because the government chooses to keep them in this situation.
This book surprised me with the author’s harsh criticism. She is definitely not gentle. But some surprises were good. The information covered in the book both statistics and stories is very educational and bolsters the author’s points. The author does not stray from the ideology of the books endorsers on both the front and back covers (Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Larry Kudlow, and Dr. Laura Schlessinger). I recommend this book to anyone willing to indulge the Star Parker’s sharp tongue because there is a lot to be learned from her in depth analysis of America’s poor and the government that keeps them poor. If you can’t bear to listen to the endorsers listed above, you will not be able to finish this book.
