In the United States, the Old Right, also called the Paleoconservatives, are 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. Many were associated with the Republicans led by Robert Taft, but some were Democrats.

Notable people include Herbert Hoover, William Randolph Hearst, congressman Howard Buffett (R-Nebraska), and writers H. L. Mencken, Albert Jay Nock, Rose Wilder Lane, Garet Garrett, and Walter Lippmann,
