I don't usually read fiction but I read Orson Scott Card's book Empire today.   He makes a good argument for moderation in politics, and certainly presents a "novel" solution to our political problems.  It is fiction, and respect for the ideas of others is one of his requests.  I checked him out on Wikipedia, because I was intrigued with what appeared to be a shuttlecock of back and forth as to "liberal" and "conservative."

He doesn't fit strictly into a category of Democrat or Republican, and wonders in his book why there is such fascism in the parties, such intolerance for those who stand with a foot in each camp.  It is to consider.
