In the United States, the Old Right, also pejoratively called the paleoconservatives, refers to a faction of American conservatives who both opposed Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal leftist programs and were also non-interventionists (isolationists) opposing entry into World War II. The Old Right was mostly active during 1930s–1960s. Many were associated with the Republicans led by Robert Taft, but some were Democrats. It was the ideological rival of the Old Left.
Notable people include Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, William Randolph Hearst, Representative Howard Buffett (R–Nebraska), Charles A. Halleck (R–IN) and writers H.L. Mencken, Albert Jay Nock, Rose Wilder Lane, Garet Garrett, and Walter Lippmann.
