Why we also have different laws in different states and was for License Plates, why not have license plates called "United States Of America"?

Because there are separate states that are 'united'?

Just a guess, LOL.

The licensing of vehicles, in accordance with the 10th amendment, is a power belonging to the individual states. Here’s a fun fact, if a state decided to stop licensing their cars (or issuing birth certificates) they could and there is nothing the federal government or other states can do about it other than dangle money or take it away as long as they do the same thing to every one of their citizens.

Besides, I love all the different license plates, it’s fun to see the states’ personalties on those things.

Because not all laws are federal laws. We also have state and local laws. Each state is so different, and even areas within the states have different needs, it wouldn't make sense to only have one set of laws for everyone across the board.

In United States, what is the second word?


This isn't Merica.


It is a union of individual states. It was not a collective, until the 16th and 17th amendments.
