Only if you think of the "United States" as singular. But see that "s" on the end of the word "state"? That would indicate that 50 states (or 57 if you listen to Obama) are united for a common purpose. Now that idea isn't very popular any more. It hasn't been since the "Civil War," called "The War of Northern Aggression" by anyone in the South who fell victim to it.
