water is not infinite. maybe I treat it like it is because I live near Seattle where it is practically infinite, try going to southern california and try giving everyone free water, they'll drain the Owens Rive and Lake Mono in about 10 days. try driving along US 395 in the Owens Valley and look what cheap water did to the environment there, imagine if it were free,,,,
It's not a guaranteed right to housing; you're correct in that regard. But giving a home and a social worker to homeless people, which will essentially end homelessness within the next few years, according to projections, means that regardless of constitutional guarantees, there is no homelessness, and therefor it is pretty close to a right to housing.No, I'm saying that those programs do not constitute Utah making housing a right.

This answer is two part. Water is a basic human right. There should be no infringement on the collection of rain water, desalination, home purification. But should the government hand out water to people? No, thats a tremendous waste of money considering how easy it is to collect and purify rain water (assuming it's legal in your state) and other methods of reaching a water source that can be cleaned.
