It can be boiled down to this quote he used: "Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it." -Mark Twain

And American patriotism is known for being about dissent and perfecting a imperfect place. It's about fighting for those core values written in the founding documents, even though they were not made into action from the start.
