Compare the prices of a normal, single-person talk/text/data plan with the price of this plan.  $80+ bucks  vs $20 bucks.  That's what this offers.

+1 on suppressing irrelevant political commentary.

We got a flier from Verizon for a $19.99/mo. unlimited talk/text/data
cellular home phone access.  We actually signed up to add it to our
"Family Share Plane" for $9.99/mo., so both our Droids and all the
home phones will share the same pool of minutes.

We can't seem to come close to exceeding our allotted minutes because
all minutes with other Verizon customers are free, as are all minutes
with non-Verizon customers on our "friends&family" list.

The home cellular unit is free for a limited time and simply jacks
into whatever wired phones you have in your house.  In our case,
that's eight handsets split between hardwired and cordless over two
floors.  It has 911 access (internal GPS chip), voicemail, caller ID,
call waiting, call forwarding, three-way calling, and battery backup.

After crunching the numbers, this will cut our phone bill to one-third
of what we were paying Bellsouth/AT&T for local+longdistance service.

I fail to see what a reseller like Republic Wireless is offering for
the same price besides an inferior network.
