It seems to me, and correct me if I'm wrong, that most people's impression of politicians is negative. But as in all professions, there must be both good and bad politicians. But because it is such a tempting profession, and by that I mean there are many ways to go astray, I would say that those politicians who manage, or even just try, to do good things for the people deserve our utmost respect.
Instead of seeing politicians as liars, I say we should start seeing them as honest and good people, wanting to do good for the world.
With the media reports and authoritative information from the government only, we are unable to distinguish good politicians from bad politicians, which makes most people tend to attach corruption and decay to all the politicians.

I agree completely with what you say.
But if we think they're all bad, we make the situation worse. ...Because people often behave as it is expected of them. Have you heard the quote, “Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.” It seems to be true.
Even though we can't tell individually which ones are"good" and which are "bad," I believe that there must be some good politicians that never make it on the news. It can't be possible that they are all bad. I followed the crowd and disregarded the good ones in the past, but nowadays I silently put my faith and hope on the good ones. To me it seems it's not important to know them individually.
we hav to admit that they r shrewd , money-oriented,represent the interests of their own groups( as the case in westen countries). Maybe China is otherwise, but i still doubt whether our politicians DO represent the mass majority of our chinese folks ?!
