It establishes that the constitution, Federal Laws made and treaties are the supreme law of the land. It provides state courts are bound by the supreme law and when there is a conflict between state and federal law the federal law must be applied. Even state constitutions are subordinate to the federal law.

The purpose of the supremacy clause is to insure that states do not abuse power or become their own entity. We are called the "United" States because we are together. If a state has its own laws and ignores the federal laws, then it might as well be another country. The supremacy clause insures that we stay united.

In the 1960's, federal laws against racial segregation in restaurants and hotels came into conflict with laws of some states that required separate accommodations for African-Americans and whites. The courts ruled the state laws invalid based on Article VI of the constitution, the supremacy clause, which states that "the constitution and the laws of the United States... shall be the supreme law of the land."

The Supremacy Clause (Article VI, Clause 2) establishes the Constitution as the "supreme law of the land," with which all other laws must comply, and subordinates state statutes to federal statutes and treaties when the two are in conflict.

Article VI, Clause 2:

"This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."
