I think that the country will absolutely adopt some of Bernie Sanders ideas from his op-ed. Sanders has repeatedly quoted Lincoln saying, "we want a government of the people, by the people and for the people." Sanders' greatest concern throughout the entire race has been focused on what is best for the American people, and I think adopting some of the ideas penned in his op-ed will only benefit our country.
Even though it looks like Bernie Sanders will not be the Democratic nominee, it is extremely likely that the country will nonetheless adopt some of his ideas. He has openly spoken out against Wall Street, tax breaks, and student loans, decrying their immorality and demanding change. He's woken up a lot of Americans about the depth of the government's corruption, and as such, it is highly unlikely that his ideas will be forgotten come November, no matter the identity of the next president.
Yes, the United States of America will adopt some of the ideas that Bernie sanders wrote in his op-ed piece regarding what he wants for the country. Although Bernie sanders will not be president, he is still very well respected. Thus, people are very interested in hearing his ideas and are willing to try to implement some of them.
While Senator Sanders' does appeal to many on a visceral level - by addressing their frustrations with material inequality - his policies are never going to be adopted. This is because they are the same socialist ideas that have failed throughout the last century. His ideas on ending income inequality via a massive tax increase on those he deems wealthy would only serve to dampened economic activity and hurt the very people he claims to be doing this for; i.e., the poor. His ideas on fixing problems in the criminal justice system seem to be equally unrealistic, resting on addressing the root of crime, not punishing criminals or keeping citizens safe. While the former should be part of the mix, the first order of government is to provide a safe society for law abiding citizens. Finally, on climate change, his reliance on top-down mandates, rather than bottom-up innovation to move us away from fossil fuel use guarantee the least efficient path to a carbon neutral future, one that will cause unnecessary economic dislocation for very little gain. Finally, even if his ideas had merit, there is little chance that they would ever make it through Congress, regardless of the party in control.
