Our Mission at Convincing Proof
At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, our Founding Fathers struggled to piece together a constitution for our newly-founded country. At the time, Benjamin Franklin, the voice of reason of the convention, stood up and implored George Washington and the other members of the Convention. In his speech, Franklin said, “I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth — that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?” (emphasis added)
It is from this quote that the website was born.
Convincing Proof is a constitutionally conservative blog, applying the truths set forth by our nation’s Founding Fathers in the Constitution. Our hope is to apply a conservative approach to today’s issues, keeping in mind Franklin’s wise words that “God governs in the affairs of men.”
