 Talk:Old Right - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Old Guard Republican refers to the freshman Republican US congressmen who were elected in 1946.
The most notable members of the Old Guard included John Bricker of Ohio, William Jenner of Indiana, William Knowland of California, George Malone of Nevada, Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, Arthur Watkins of Utah, John Williams of Delaware, Karl Mundt of South Dakota, and Charles Kersten of Wisconsin.
Most of the Old Guard were defeated in the elections of 1958, thanks mostly to efforts by union members who opposed policies they perceived as being anti-labor.

What the Old Right lacked was not a political mass, but rather an intellectual cadre, and the small but increasing number of hard-core libertarians influenced by Mises and Rand and Nock after World War II provided a growing intellectual foundation for that movement.

The relationship of political conservatism to the religious right is a perennial source for commentary.

 Life in the Old Right by Murray N. Rothbard

Old Right Republicans, the soul of the party, always managed to lose the presidential nomination, perpetually stolen from them by the Eastern Establishment-Big Banker-Rockefeller wing of the party, who used their media clout, as well as hardball banker threats to call in the delegates' loans, to defeat majority sentiment in the party.

 Polemics: Renewing the Old Right   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
What is telling is what Williamson chooses not to include in his fundamental definition: he wisely avoids invoking the spectres of liberty and democracy, which became buzzwords for some erstwhile conservatives as long ago as 1980 and have become increasingly dangerous and vacuous.
What becomes objectionable even about the early American understanding of liberty is its emancipatory aspect, according to which any ostensibly arbitrary constraints were perceived as being inimical to liberty, when it was the Burkean and indeed "Adamsian" perspective that constraints are those things that maintain liberty and keep it from degenerating.
It is precisely this emancipatory aspect of old American liberalism that undid the established churches in the former colonies, and which ultimately has rotted away the social order that produced the constitutional system in the first place.
