What does "One Nation under God, indivisible" mean to you?
What does "Perfect Union" (as in "in order to form" one) mean to you?
The "sovereign states" version of the US was the Articles of Confederacy. They were replaced by the Constitution because they didn't work. The Constitution establishes a central government which is sovreign over the states (i.e., 14th Amendment).
The argument over States Rights was settled by the Civil War, the premature ending of Reconstruction notwithstanding.
Did we respond to Pearl Harbor as "48 sovereign states" or as a Nation?
A pandemic should be addressed like an attack on the nation. In fact, according to #45, it is an attack, from China! So we're expecting the individual states to respond to an "attack" from China?
