    You will also die without food and in some places in winter you will die without heat and shelter. Should those all be free as well. What about if you live in the country and need a car to get to the grocery store. If you don't have a car should that be free as well. After all if you can't get to the store you can't buy food so you will die then to. How about this let's just have the government just keep printing more and more money than they can give everything anyone needs for free.
    What a great idea. No one should have to be responsible for themselves at all.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Dude get over it. It only water. As the the richest or at least one of the richest countries on earth we should be able to provide water. We're not talking about giving everyone free dinners at Ruth's Chris. it's water

    If you consider all the things the gov't spends our money on (defense, roads, bridges, justice system etc), should one of them be a simple necessity?

    Rights are granted by individual societies, so the UN forcing its absurd view of human rights onto a water company in Detroit seems unlikely- either by money or political pressure.

    Are people entitled to water, food, shelter, other necessities..? Nope. In nature, there is an exchange. And parasites are at the bottom of that foodchain.
