    Following shortly after your quote,

    “Tis curious to observe the anticipations of the different parties. One side appears to believe that there is a serious plot to overturn the state Governments and substitute monarchy to the present republican system. The other side firmly believes that there is a serious plot to overturn the General Government & elevate the separate power of the states upon its ruins. Both sides may be equally wrong & their mutual jealousies may be materially causes of the appearances which mutually disturb them, and sharpen them against each other.”

    If Hamilton is used to reflect current conditions, then you can use “Both sides may be equally wrong & their mutual jealousies may be materially causes of the appearances which mutually disturb them”, to attack BOTH right and left. So, I would say, let Hamilton go. His main subject was debt in the Treasury.

    The left and Hillary have this curious habit of thinking Hamilton predicted the Trump administration. Get over it.
