Right-wing, anti-government organizations have long existed within the American political system. While such "patriot" groups have maintained a presence within the United States, their proliferation has been heavily dependent upon the current administration. The number of groups increased rapidly starting in 2008, the same year President Obama gained office, and peaked in 2012, the height of Obama's presidency.
