"I would hope that we can find someone there in Idaho that would stand for the Constitution and that I can support," he said. "It would have to be someone other than the typical Republocrat." Gritz, who lives in Nevada, said he rented a residence in Boise in case he decides to file as a candidate to succeed Democrat Cecil Andrus who says he will not seek reelection. Gritz, 54, says the New World Order threatens American sovereignty with a one world government. He favors abolishing the Federal Reserve and the federal income tax which he says violate the constitution. Gritz has accused top government officials of drug smuggling and of keeping American POWs in Southeast Asia because they know about the smuggling. Gritz said an associate is looking around Idaho, including the St. Anthony area, for a place to live. He said he's decided against running for governor in either Utah or Nevada. "Utah to me is tied up in LDS politics," he said, "Nevada is tied up in Mafioso. We need a state where people are free thinkers." Gritz also told the Post Register he is not a racist and he disavowed reported linked to white supremacists calling it a "semantic problem." Gritz is scheduled to speak in idaho Falls on Friday 2/12/93 at 7 PM at the Civic Auditorium. On Saturday 2/13/92 Gritz will teach a survivalist course at nearby Shelly Idaho High School. The 12 hour class will cover subjects such as combat medicine, survival defense, land navigation, and emergency preparedness. Gritz says the reason people are signing up for the course is that "we live in an age where Dominios' Pizza can get to your house faster than the police department." So far 140 people have signed up for the class which costs $100 for the first family member and $50 for each additional family member. Accompanying Gritz as instructors are Scott David Weekly, a former Navy Seal, Gary Goldman, a former Army Ranger, and Dick Clark, a former Los Angeles Police Department instructor. Gritz says he hopes to make a profit with the program which will offer ten additional courses of increasing difficulty. The programs are sponsored by an organization called Saving America according to Jerry Gillespie of Mesa, AZ.
