When you think of America, do you think of 50 independent countries joined together, or one large country with 50 territories?

It's not a union, it's a nation. To me, the "united" carries more weight than the "states".

Every state is sovereign subject only to the US Constitution. That means they have far more authority than a simple territory.

E pluribus unum. Whether the "pluribus" refers to people/origins/backgrounds (my usual interpretation) or states.

That is, I live in Colorado at present. I've lived in Ohio, Illinois, California, Oregon, that non-state DC, Michigan, and West Virginia, as well. In none of those did I feel I was living in a place fundamentally different than the others.
