The political philosophy of both the Republican Party and the Democratic Party underwent a dramatic shift from their earlier philosophies during the second half of the twentieth century.
In most states, this means declaring oneself a candidate for the nomination of a particular party and intent to enter that party's primary election for an office.

  Politics of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Politics of the United States of America takes place in a framework of a federal presidential representative democratic republic, whereby the President of the United States is both head of state and head of government, and of a two-party legislative and electoral system.
Its structure is similar to that of the state and national governments, with an elected mayor as chief of the executive branch and an elected council that represents the various neighborhoods forming the legislative branch.
State legislators began to enact tough laws that made it harder for minor political parties to run candidates for office by requiring a high number of petition signatures from citizens and decreasing the length of time that such a petition could legally be circulated.

 Grassroots Politics in the United States (April 21, 2006) - U.S. Embassy Singapore
So, stepping back to the early days of the United States, Senator Albert Beveridge of Indiana is often given credit for coining the term “grassroots" in connection with politics when he said at the 1912 Bull Moose Party convention that, "this party has come from the grass roots.
