Congressman Ron Paul, everyone's favorite presidential candidate (in terms of entertainment value), is selling his longtime Lake Jackson home.

He's got a Web site (buyronpaulshouse.com) about it and everything.

"Generations of Liberty loving kids have grown up here, and you can continue the tradition," says the site.

Added bonus: It also contains the home office for Paul's gynecological practice.

You too can trod the path walked by one of the political thinkers of our time, if we may used a decidedly neutral description.

Here's the description:

5,500 square feet house with 4 bedrooms, 2 with lofts, 5 bathrooms, an oversize pool, a large office with built-in book shelves, 2 car garage, a formal dining room, living room, family room, and a craft room. Ron and Carol lived there for 42 years, lots of great memories in this house. 50 minutes to Houston, 10 minutes from Surfside Beach.

Asking price is a mere $325,000. Warning: You may eventually be pressured into donating it for use as a museum once Paul's two presidential terms are over.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
