No way. Government in the US is slow because it's SUPPOSED TO BE. It's supposed to be transparent, fair, accountable to the public, careful with what government imposes on people - all of this means slow.
If you refuse to pay your $100 Comcast bill or otherwise violate their terms of service, they worst they'll ever do is cut off your service and you'll switch to a competing competing, maybe even DSL.
If you refuse to pay your government bill, roughly 40% of your income, or violate their edicts, they'll force you to comply. If necessary, they'll send their armed enforcers to your house and point guns at you while they take your stuff and haul you off to prison. Any organization exercising that kind of power needs major decisions to be made carefully, cautiously, publicly, and in a way that's very accountable to the citizenry.
A private company can act quickly when the CEO says "do it, get it done right away" and those who report to him get to work right away, they don't hold public hearings and debates, they do what the CEO said to do, if the CEO wants it done immediately. You CAN have government like that, where the leader is the absolute authority and there is no debate, no public discussion, no accountability to the public, so things get done quickly. North Korea has such a system I don't want that.
I WANT our government to have public hearings before they spend $10 billion of OUR money. If Comcast wants to spend $10 billion of THEIR money, they can just do it, immediately. If they waste THEIR money, so be it. If the chief executive of Comcast wants to change their IT policies, he can do that today. No skin off my nose. If the chief executive of the government wants to change public policy, making something else illegal, meaning people will be sent to prison for doing _____, I WANT that to be implemented slowly, cautiously, carefully. US government is SUPPOSED to be slow, cautious, fair, and accountable, not fast.
