I disagree ... in my view, if the US Constitution had an article which said that "the idea that the States are sovereign is hereby utterly destroyed" it would not have been consented to ... I believe the States intended to delegate enumerated powers, not their very sovereignty.
IDK how you could know the definition of sovereign and believe the states retained the position of "sole sovereign" after ratifying the Constitution. YOu either gave up the legitimate use of force in some situations or you didn't, and the ratification of the Constitution was clearly giving it up in some situations.
