Rand Paul wants Wants Everything His Way! Even things belonging to others.
The latest whining by Libertarian Rand Paul about his plagiarism is simply a continuation of his self-obsessed view of life. Go back a few years and you will recall that he was in a wierd debate about whether he was a board certified ophthalmologist. Disliking some of the rules of the Amercan Board of Ophthalmology, Paul formed his own board certification organization whose rules he controlled which he called the National Board of Ophthalmology. Talk about arrogant! He made himself President of the board, his wife the Vice President and his father-in-law Secretary.
This is how this guy's brain works. If this isn't a heavy dose of narcissitic personality disorder, what is? When called on this peculiar board certification scenario Paul whined by accusing critics of an "attack on his livelhood."

If you want to rip off others' intellectual property and are caught, you whine that people are just picking on you.
So his sociopathy fits the Libertarian model nicely.
