How the Welfare State Destroys Families

Under the leadership of President Donald Trump, we have more momentum to discuss individualism versus collectivism, Star Parker told the Epoch Times at this year’s CPAC.

The founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education has firsthand knowledge about the family-destroying cycle of welfare. She was on and off welfare for seven years.

Star mentioned her book, Uncle Sam’s Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America’s Poor and What We Can Do About It, in which she made the case that socialism of a sort already exists in this country.

“How is it that we spend a quarter of our budget on anti-poverty programs, with none of them working, with the poverty rate still not moving?”

Can the government “fix” poverty? No. Watch the brief clip to hear real solutions.

  1.  Children need two parents to teach them the three Rs of life ” Respect, Responsibility and Reliability”, for far too many kids their only parent is overwhelmed with just feeding, clothing them and praying for them to come home at night.
    The family unit especially the Black family is an endangered institution and will fade into oblivion unless we as Americans apply all our hearts and minds to reversing this insanity of subsidizing the fatherless home and find a way to subsidize a two parent household! Find a way to destroy the drug trade! and promote entrepenureism and other capitalistic endeavors, to encourage job growth and prosperity to these inner cities that are so horribly afflicted with the liberal government funding fatherless homes to their determent. 
     The poor in this country are victims of our own governments policies, socialistic policies of selfish politicians who offer just enough money to sustain them, but never any incentives to to improve their lot for fear of losing what the government provides.
