Why do they talk as if they're missing teeth? Is the Mississippi accent/voter literally like this or is it exaggerated in the Events Chain?

Shoot, really? They didn’t go after your family at all?

90s so Bratvas and the rest of it was common place. The entire black market just suddenly became public, had been brewing all through the 70s and 80s. Was hard to get official loans, no real banks, and an initial payment was needed to get a mortgage on newly privatized land near the town center. Building a new life and all that.
At the time the fam had a farm and this unit of a man, I think short and bulky, came over to get his money every couple of months. My granddad just talked with him like he does with everyone and the guy just drove off each time, gave him some apples or moonshine with vague promises and it got forgotten about eventually.

Life is literally just about having the right people and luck, that’s what I’ve learnt from the old man.

Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name: Mersdon

Character Name: Rennie V. Rockefeller

Character Gender: Male

Character Age: 56 (born April 12th, 1972)

Character Height: 6'1

Character Weight: 225 pounds

Character Position/Role/Job: U.S. Senator for Georgia

Appearance:
(Image)


Character State of Origin: New York

Character State of Residence: Georgia

Character Party Affiliation: Independent (I), caucuses with the Republican Party

Main Strengths: Well-off, ethically driven, incorruptible (as in does not take money or b.s. from lobbyists), and very sociable.

Main Weaknesses: Stutter (undergoing therapy), does not do well in brief, sharp exchanges, and is unfortunately too generous/a pushover for his own good.

Biography: Ronald Vaughn Rockefeller, the great-great-great grandson of the original Rockefeller mining magnate and Vice President Rockefeller's nephew was born on April 12th, 1972, at Columbia University Hospital to parents Oliver Rockefeller and Elisa Petrey (OOC: both parents don't exist in the real world, and are here solely for flavoring purposes). Growing up, 'Ronnie', as he was often called, developed a stutter and was bullied mercilessly at school. Under his therapist's advice, he underwent intense speech therapy (resulting in a much-reduced tendency to stutter, although it still breaks through sometimes) and was sent to Washington, D.C. to Sidwell Friends to study. He was a mediocre student, generally receiving Bs and Cs (although he had to redo Chemistry and French in his junior year), but still managed to make contacts within the Beltway scene that would come in handy later. Once Ronnie turned 18, he volunteered for the Peace Corps and served in Panama as part of an education and health drive in Panama City, where he met his wife, a socialite named Patricia del Rio. Following his two-year stint in Central America, Rennie attended Georgetown University, earning a masters' in Political Science, Economics, and a bachelor's in Spanish Literature. The Rockefeller family, having welcomed their first child, Alejandro Rockefeller, during Ronnie's senior year in college (1998), then moved to Tampa, where he set up a small regional airline equipped with three Saab 240s with a cash advance from his trust fund. Eventually, he expanded the airline's route network following a sustained jump in demand caused by the aftereffects of 9/11 and the oil glut caused by overproduction following the Iraq War, and sold the company (then employing over 800 people and with 55 aircraft) to Delta Air Lines in 2005. Following that, he bought a home in Atlanta, and with Delta's financial backing, Rockefeller became the Secretary of State of Georgia in a close (53% to 47%) election in 2008. During his tenure, he dealt with increasing attempts at gerrymandering and otherwise corrupt or dishonest measures with a stern hand, ordering that the Republican governor's plans to reduce voting booths in predominantly Democratic regions of the state be halted and censured, and notably advocating for state aid to Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines be cut in response to the 2008 financial crisis. Due to his almost heretical ideas (Rennie self-identifies as a Rockefeller Republican, and didn't hesitate to work across the aisle with Georgia's Democratic officials'), Rockefeller was often shunned/ostracized by the more dyed-in-the-wool conservative party bosses then reigning in Atlanta, and as such, he declined to run for the Secretary of State slot in 2012. Rennie turned himself towards raising his two kids (one daughter, Isabel, had been born in 2002), and became a part-time columnist and writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Guardian, writing about fiscal policy and Southern politics.

In 2016, the incumbent of Georgia's Class 3 Senate seat retired, and Rennie threw his hat into the ring for the office as an Independent. Most of the party bosses' ruffled feathers from when Rockefeller had derailed their primary and general election vote plans were smoothed over via a series of secretive $250,000 donations from his trust fund in New York, and a promise from the aspiring Senator that he would throw his considerable bipartisan and financial weight behind the Republican nominee for Governor in 2018. Largely due to this behind-the-scenes scheming and dealing and Rockefeller's reputation as a stern but fair politician on both sides of the aisle, Ronald Vaughn Rockefeller was declared the winner of the election with 58% of the vote (his nearest competitor, a Democrat, received 37% of all ballots cast) by securing Atlanta, the Appalachians, the seaboard, and university towns such as Macon and Athens for himself. Following the Senator's swearing-in in the Capitol, he threw himself into the economic and foreign policy spheres in the Senate, soon becoming a member of the Small Business, Budget, Committee, Finance, and Foreign Relations Committees. Although his stutter often worked against him in debates and during combative hearings, Senator Rockefeller built up a reputation as an incorruptible man (refusing to allow lobbyists to donate to his campaigns or attempt to advise him), and one driven by ethics (often voting against party lines when he believed something was immoral).

Other Info: Political leanings could be described as an interesting mix of OOC Sanders-type policy and Eastern Establishment liberal ideals. Supports abortion, the secular status of the state, an increased welfare net, and a more interventionist foreign policy. Disagrees with "prayer rights in schools", the rise of populism, corruption in politics, and funding corporations that use tax loopholes and legal avenues to avoid paying into the federal budget. Appreciates chickens (he raises six at his Atlanta home), sailing, writing, painting, and a good cup of coffee every now and then; but can't stand cats (too much hair, and besides, he's allergic to them), overly sweet food, and people who mock his speech issues. Rockefeller's worth an estimated $150 million, mostly inherited, and owns three houses (one each in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Panama City) and two flats (one in London and another in New York). Alejandro is going to Penn State for his law degree and hopes to find work in New York as a corporate lawyer, while Isabel is currently finishing up high school at Sidwell Friends School. His wife works as an adviser for Delta Air Lines, and also serves on the board of Copa Airlines.

I kind of like using the accent I'm using to write it out, though Kelvi's version of it does seem a bit exaggerated to me but then again I'm definitely not claiming to be an expert in South Accents, if people want me to stop I'm fine doing so.

Everything Mississippi does Alabama does better, no business ever wants to move to that state for a very good reason

Mississippi has literally no redeeming qualities whatsoever

I remember watching a documentary or something like that on the 2017 Special in Alabama and one lady said something like, "You know, we're only the second-worst state, Mississippi's right there so any time someone talks about us like we're the worst we just point over to them."

As long as your country isn't former Yugoslav, it's probably decent compared to those.

Also half the people in my country don't even know yours exist, despite being in an alliance with it since it was created

I’m guessing you’re in the U.K? By the amount of immigrants coming in most soon will lol
That’s true, at least there’s no ethnic wars. Could easily be living in a Nordic level country, whole place is still a Banana Republic because of continuous corruption.

Yep, in the UK. We've been getting a lot of immigrants from Eastern Europe, and while I think it might decrease after Brexit, it'll probably improve our geography skills as a population. :P

Latvia could be Ukraine, so it could be worse

He was quite progressive. Sure a long time politician but that's not big of a deal.

Justice Democrats and the rest should have put their efforts somewhere else imo

Yeah, I'll admit he should've been lower down the priority list imo, but still. It's a victory nonetheless.

Yes, it was about Cori Bush, rather than Lacy Clay.
