In addition to all his other accomplishments was Alexander Hamilton a prophet?

"When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits—despotic in his ordinary demeanor—known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty—when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity—to join in the cry of danger to liberty—to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion—to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day—It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind" -- Alexander Hamilton, 1792

    the Founders while not being perfect, where very smart men, and together they constituted probably one of the greatest body of genius this world has ever seen, I wish more of our leaders today would look to them for guidance
