  1. You know someone is not really concerned about carbon emissions if they reject natural gas and nuclear energy
  2. You know someone is not really serious about getting the deficit under control if they are in favor of near-term stimulus (more spending) and long-term spending cuts (i.e., when they are out of office)
  3. You know someone is not really in favor of helping unemployed low skilled workers if they support the minimum wage
  4. You know someone is not really serious about reducing health care costs if they create additional demand for doctors while reducing supply of doctors.
  5. You know someone is not really serious about growing the economy when they support record levels of growth in regulation

There are probably dozens more.  What can you add?
