But if moderators make the rules how do they represent the community, its more like they tell the community what to do, wouldn't the up/down vote count represent the will of the community?

If you don't like how a mod runs a sub, make a new sub and run it how you want.

How do you expect a sub of 100 dedicated users to fight against a brigade of 500?

Upvoat and downvoats are great for the community, but if a post doesn't obey the rules, sometimes it needs to get taken down. Like a screenshot with personal identifying information. An upvoat and downvoat button isn't going to be effective in taking that down immediately.

You can, and should have community input on the rules.

You know...like when Voat was picking up steam...it clearly went to shit fast /s.

Downvoting is perfectly acceptable for moderation of a community.

I don't think that's necessarily true. You can just avoid this sub and vote with your traffic.
