It seems to me that the United States is tearing itself apart and as such there’s only one logical solution — an economic union between newly independent Blue States and the rump United States.
This is how it would work out — Blue States would be able to leave the United peacefully, taking their huge economies with them. You might do this gradually over the course of about a decade. Meanwhile, as you’re doing that, you establish an EU type setup.
As such, Red States do what they want to do, which is become a totalitarian hellscape, while the Blue States would remain free to trade with Red States as needed.
Of course, the funny part about this is by the time you successfuly put this in place, Baby Boomers will be largely dead and America in general will be brown enough to make the whole situation moot.
