I never entered a contract with 'the cops', so, no, you're absolutely wrong. The government acquires its funds primarily through theft & extortion. They don't deserve to be paid anything. The entire institution of government is illegitimate & criminal. Labor only deserves payment when someone voluntarily (ie in the absence of coercion) agrees to pay (usually by contract). Governments, especially the United States, are violent and fraudulent at nearly every level and therefore, "deserve" nothing.
