Loesghost - because of the way our constitution is written we cannot do this. It would require an amendment to be approved by congress and then ratified by, I think 2/3 of the state's legislatures before it would be in effect. Not likely to happen due to the interstate commerce clause and the reserve clause. Remember, when rebelled against Britain and won, we became 13 countries who relunctantly gave up some sovernty when the constitution went into effect.
