    To be sure, fair and impartial courts are the business of us all. In a very real sense, it is businesses that have a proportionally larger stake in the issue of fair courts, because businesses are the repeat users of the court system.

    The attempts to politicize the courts and influence judicial selection processes are not about appropriate judicial accountability, which of course is important. Yet from Iowa to Florida to Kansas, and many states in-between, these attempts have targeted the removal of judges for specific decisions unpopular with special interests or political interests or public opinion.

    But the courts were not intended to be a political or representative branch, swaying in the wind of public opinion. Judges should make decisions based on the facts and the law. However, numerous national polls and surveys document the limited knowledge held by Americans about our government, and its corresponding institutions and processes.
