Hi Stephen P. King 

Absolutely.  Science is supposed to be impersonal, 
but an individual has to decide

what to measure (this can be influenced by politics)
how to measure it-- including how accurately 
what theory to compare the results with (this can be influenced by politics)
How to interpret the results (this can be influenced by politics)
Infer some meaning from the results (this can be influenced by politics)

So science is often more politics than science.

The physical is, and only is, what you can measure.

    Yes, exactly. But what about what we do not measure, what about what we 
infer from what we measure?
