 POLITICAL GENERATIONS
While southern grassroots party activists tended to specialize in the campaigning “mode” of participation, what is most noticeable in our 2001 study is how the young have expanded their participation into other activities that help maintain the party organization.
Older activists of both parties are more likely than the young to have occupied their current party position before the last party election (in 2000) and even prior to 1990, and to have previously held an appointed office and at least two party or appointed offices (table 7).
Our 1991 Southern Grassroots Party Activists study found that the younger generation Democratic and Republican activists were more ideologically extreme than their more mature party colleagues, helping to produce ideologically distinct southern parties that mirrored the liberal-conservative divisions that characterized the party system in the rest of the nation.

 Green Party (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The ASGP then changed its name to the "Green Party of the United States," adopted some of the G/GPUSA's structures (identity caucuses, for example), and was granted status as the official National Committee of the Green Party by the FEC in 2001.
In the 2004 presidential election, the candidate of the Green Party of the United States for President was Texas attorney and GPUS legal counsel David Cobb, and its candidate for vice-president was labor activist Pat LaMarche of Maine.
Although some Green Party members were upset and some expressed "embarrassment" that Nader was not the party's 2004 candidate, others believed that a serious presidential campaign could be waged with a "home-grown" figure such as Cobb, running away from the spoiler effect.

 Grassroots Politicians: Party Activists in British Columbia. by David Mitchell   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Grassroots Politicians is actually a series of studies based primarily on a survey of the opinions of delegates attending the provincial leadership conventions of the Social Credit, NDP, and Liberal parties in 1986 and 1987.
Grassroots Politics demonstrates that this image of highly charged, class-based politics needs to be seriously qualified when applied to the British Columbia electorate as a whole.
The reason offered for the failure of the province's parties to converge towards the political centre is that they are constrained by the attitudes of their activists.

 Building a Grassroots Political Party   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The platform is a standard by which to measure candidates that the party may support as well as recruit members for the task of supporting those candidates, while the bylaws structure the efforts that are expended by the members in support of that platform and those candidates.
The final objective presupposes the growth of the party in terms of actual voter registration and candidate appeal to at least a plurality and ideally to a majority in the State of Oregon.
This is where the party members get their experience in parliamentary procedure, educate and encourage the party membership in all their recruiting endeavors, and develop house-to-house campaign plans for our party candidates.

 Northwest Progressive Institute: Political parties key to the future of grassroots politics
Parties need to be driven from the ground up—and not managed from the top down—if they are to reach their full significance.
Given the decline of parties, it is surely no accident that the number of staggeringly wealthy candidates like Sen. Jon Corzine or Rep. Michael Huffington who can finance their own campaigns has increased in the last two decades or so, as has the number of celebrities and sports figures.
If party affiliation is an important voting cue, then that simple fact acts as a powerful check on the news media, which do have a vested interest in encouraging or at least cheering on the decline of grassroots party organizations.
