In the Declaration of Independence, the phrase “united States of America” appears twice. Note that “united” is not spelled with a capital U. It is merely an adjective. Twice more the phrase “Free and Independent States”. Note the capital F and capital I. I think it was once of primary importance that we be Free and that we be Independent. Somewhere along the line, somebody decided to emphasis the United adjective. I rather wish that hadn’t happened. I’d much rather live in the Free and Independent States of America. Even the united Free and Independent States of America. Just keep that “u” lower-case, and leave the emphasis where it belongs.
