Star Parker: Back on Uncle Sam's Plantation

Star Parker is a conservative columnist and former welfare recipient. This gives her a unique perspective on the "unintended consequences" of socialistic policies, despite their "good intentions". She has characterized the US welfare system as "Uncle Sam's Plantation".

From her Feb. 2009 column "Back on Uncle Sam's Plantation":

"Instead of solving economic problems, government welfare socialism created monstrous moral and spiritual problems. The kind of problems that are inevitable when individuals turn responsibility for their lives over to others. ...

"Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich American on capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming like poor America on socialism.

"Uncle Sam has welcomed our banks onto the plantation and they have said, 'Thank you, Suh.'"
