Submission + - Adams Proposes a Fourth Branch of Government (wsj.com)

LoLobey writes: Scott Adams is proposing a fourth branch of government in the WSJ: "Perhaps what we need is a fourth branch of government, smallish and economical, operating independently, with a mission to build and maintain a friendly user interface for citizens to manage their government."
It's a humorous article with some interesting ideas including internet access as a constitutional right and a constitutional ban on all election contributions for any candidate that polls above 10%. He's primarily proposing a method of getting verifiably accurate information on various issues to aid voters in making decisions, but despairs on his own blog about reader's comments on the article.
