Upstairs, the Camdens (with the exception of Dopey) have gathered in Ruthie's room, where she reads them all a print-out of her long-winded email. This is going to go on for the next ten minutes. That's right -- the entire first act of this episode is Ruthie reading an email. Ruthie has apparently gone around asking all the Camdens what they love most about living in America, and she's telling Morgan what they all said. Doesn't Morgan get enough propaganda at his job? Ruthie passes the email around the room, so each Camden can read his or her part in America Rulz! The Middle East Droolz! Eric is first. Eric is glad that we have freedom of religion in the United States, and says that people have risked their lives coming to America for that right. Ruthie lies that Eric "encourages everyone to practice whatever religion they choose, but to choose one and practice it." And never, ever try to change it, either. And I guess for Eric, "freedom of religion" doesn't include "freedom from religion," because not practicing one at all doesn't seem to be an option. Still, it's a good thing we have freedom of religion here, or gay people like myself might not be allowed to get married.
Annie is next. Annie is grateful for "freedom of education." Blah blah people need to be educated to be free blah blah otherwise they'll believe whatever they're told, which isn't exactly true. For the purposes of this episode, Annie thinks that questioning authority is a good thing in order to keep those in charge "in check," and a good education is necessary to do so effectively. So when Cate is constantly questioning Annie's authority, she's a true American patriot. Even if she is, technically, a Canadian. Yeah, Americans love people who question authority. Just ask Noam Chomsky.
