Defining Patriotism Down

From Real Clear Politics:
"Things that are not life-threatening," Moore said on HBO's "Real Time" with host Bill Maher. "The reason why you have to wait sometimes in those countries is they let everybody in the line. We make 50 million people out of the line so the line is shorter, so sometimes you have to wait as long. If you are a patriotic American, you want every American to be covered the same as you. No, not 'I'm going to get ahead because I have health insurance and they don't,'" Michael Moore explained.
I just don't see how you can equate slinging your freedom away -which has been purchased dearly with the blood of true patriots- and standing in a communist style line for health care or anything,with patriotism. The men who braved the winter at Valley Forge,or stormed the beaches of Normandy,didn't face death so we could stand in line for anything!
