    Only people who have water already will say that it's not a human right.

    No.

    I only support negative rights (i.e. those that limit government, for example, from taking something away from you). I do not support positive rights, and declaring access to fresh water would be as such.

    Rational people do not need a federal government to deem water a right. We have the common sense to make sure our local governments provide us with the fresh water we need. So, this would be totally unnecessary.

    You are guaranteed freedom to travel in America, hence your right to have access to water, or any other natural formation is already part of the common trust. Note, this does NOT mean we have the right to trample on someone's PRIVATE property in order to reach that water, as ownership of land is ALSO a protected right.

    There is nothing in the Constitution about anyone having any right to fresh water. It's not like it was a gun or something.

Your college has the terrific suited to make and observe regardless of policies it considers mandatory to maintain self-discipline and confirm reliable standards of coaching. in case you do not purely like the policies, it is merely tricky - yet once you went to the college your mothers and dads agreed which you, and that they, would abide by employing the policies that were set.
