EDIT: Wrote a letter to the editor of my local newspaper on why we should end water fluoridation in my city, you can check it out and borrow for your city here: http://www.truthstreammedia.com/post/28411684076/my-letter-to-the-editor-on-water-fluoridation-is-tooth
We are forcibly being medicated with fluoridation of our tap water in cities across the US, even though fluoride is a non-pharmaceutical, chemical waste and the main ingredient in rat poisons and many pesticides. This video doesn't even go into the myriad studies that have been done to show the harmful effects of fluoridated water on every system in your body. Instead, I just tried to look at this issue from a logical justification standpoint. If you swallow toothpaste, you are urged on the tube itself to call the Poison Control Center immediately, but somehow if you drink eight glasses of fluoridated water, it's fine? Where is the logic in that? There's information out there to show that the amount of fluoride in a serving of toothpaste is the same as a glass of fluoridated water (if the water doesn't have MORE)!
Continuing on that logic train, how much of the water you drink even comes in contact with your teeth where cavities form for very long anyway? If you really want fluoride for your teeth, toothpaste is readily available for a dollar or two at any grocery or drug store. It is absolutely unnecessary to drink it.
The bottom line: fluoridated tap water makes no sense. There's a reason Hitler was fluoridating water in Nazi concentration camps, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't because he was overly concerned about their dental health. He added fluoride to pacify the prisoners and keep them docile. And now we're drinking it? Think about it.
To learn more about fluoride and what you can do about it, check out www.fluoridealert.org where you can also take action by writing to your local representatives about the dangers of fluoridated water. People in cities all over America have petitioned their reps to get fluoride out of their water and some have won the battle—you can't win if you don't try!
Here are a smattering of scientific studies on the negative impacts of fluoride:

Quote: "The city officials of Grand Rapids in the 1940s had no idea that fluoridation chemicals were toxic industrial waste contaminated with lead and arsenic..."
Geez. There are so many that I'm going to run out of room...
