I do think tap water should have fluoride. I grew up on spring water and ended up with a lot of cavities. I mostly drink filtered water now, but I give my kids tap water at least half of the time. Hopefully their teeth will be better!
No, water from the tap should be as pure as we can make it. We use water for many things like watering the lawn and washing the floor. Why put flouride in there where it will be wasted? If you want flouride, put it in the water after you draw it from the tap. But don't put it in the water supply.

He doesn't have teeth, and fluoride is bad for him.
