Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
[Take heart, true conservatives. Here's the guy to carry on what Congressman Franks began. Sheriff Mack is a man of unwavering principles. How often does a district get such a stellar candidate? Not very. We fully support Sheriff Mack.]
The Founder and President of CSPOA, Sheriff Richard Mack, announced today that he is a candidate for Congress in Arizona’s 8th District. Here is his news release:

FORMER AZ SHERIFF RICHARD MACK WILL RUN FOR CD8 CONGRESSIONAL SEAT BEING VACATED BY TRENT FRANKS
Former Graham County Sheriff Richard Mack Announced today his intention to run for Congress in Arizona’s 8th district. The current occupant of that seat, Trent Franks (R-AZ), announced recently his resignation from Congress. Sheriff Mack, who served two terms in the early 1990s, has been well-known for his strong stance in defending the Constitution and his victory at the U S Supreme Court against the Clinton Adm.
Mack has been inducted into the NRA Hall of Fame, has served as the communications director for Gun Owners of America (GOA), and currently is the President and founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA.org). CSPOA has been in the forefront of training law enforcement officers and elected officials to keep their oaths to protect and preserve the Constitution.
Mack’s candidacy will focus on bringing justice to the thousands of Americans who have been imprisoned by federal bureaucrats. He stands against the feds “creating criminals,”
the ruthlessness of the IRS, and the Department of Education’s utilization of SWAT teams. “If we are going to really ‘drain the swamp,’ then these atrocities cannot continue.” (Sheriff Mack)
With several candidates I suggest they each be evaluated based on the following.
Insanity has been defined as repeating a process and expecting a different result. It’s important voters stop electing politicians lacking the knowledge, courage, and/or integrity needed to honor their oath. Hopefully, these questions will improve the vetting process.

Now that is one thorough, beautiful list, Walter! I've got to research the Emergency Banking Act of 3/9/33 and the The 1946 change to the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that you mention (or maybe you could give us all a brief summary), but if they are consistent with the spirit of all the other items in your list then I am 100% in favor.
I am printing your list and will use parts of it during Q&A of candidates at my LD meetings.
The Emergency Banking Act can be viewed at Public Law 1 48 stat 1 . I'm in a rush and will have to locate the exact wording on the change to the Criminal procedure later.
