WTF Does That Even Mean?

OK I turned on the TV and saw about a minute of the health insurance debate. A Republican was saying “A government big enough to give you what you want is a government big enough to take it away.”

WTF? WTF does that even MEAN?
It sounds scary and sinister, but I WANT the government big enough to give people what they want and need. I mean WTF?
And government is rule by the people. So I WANT it BIG. I WANT the people having lots of control over our affairs. I mean, what is the alternative if not big corporations making the decisions for us?
