LAKE JACKSON, Texas — Never one to support intervention in something individuals can do themselves, Rep Ron Paul (R-Texas) on Thursday took to Facebook to sell his family home of 42 years.

Paul, whose training is in obstetrics and not real estate, began the marketing campaign for the Lake Jackson, Texas, home with a Facebook post that links to the website

“Carol and I are selling the house we lived in for over 40 years. If you or someone you know is moving to the Houston/Galveston/Lake Jackson area, they can get more information through this website,” the libertarian lawmaker wrote on the social networking site.

On the website, Paul says “generations of Liberty loving kids have grown up here” — including his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — and for $325,000 “you can continue the tradition.”

“A great house and a great piece of history. Dr. Paul’s house is for sale in Lake Jackson, TX. The house has 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and is approximately 5,500 sq. ft in size.

There is a great in-ground swimming pool, great landscaping, 2 lofts, an office with built in shelving. The same home-office Dr. Paul used for 42 years,” the website continues.

Pictures on the website show the “great in-ground swimming pool” is equipped with a slide. The listing also boasts the residence is just 50 minutes from Houston and 10 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico’s Surfside Beach.

Paul, 75, who ran as a Libertarian presidential candidate in 1988 and as a Republican in the 2008 White House campaign, may still have his eye on that prime piece of Washington real estate in 2012.  He just set up a committee for a possible 2012 presidential bid, and has been travleing to Iowa and New Hampshire.

According to the Real Clear Politics average of recent national polls, Paul places sixth in a hypothetical field of Republican candidates.

With an average 6.6 percent support, he trails former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, real estate mogul Donald Trump, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
