Bernie Sanders hails from Vermont. That's a State with a population of 626,000 people. You read that correct 626,000 among 327 million citizens in the USA or 0.19% of the USA population. You sure he represents us? We, the people?

The funny thing is that you think this makes Bernie look bad.

Man, after Nevada Bernie must really have you guys shook. How else do you explain the sudden, ridiculous attacks on him. Who knew that standing up for equal rights for all was such a terrible thing. You must think that MLK was literally Satan.

OH, I see not that you are not discussing Sanders but rather have an agenda against him. It has been pointed out to you that your grand assumption that he was tossed out of that commune, even though he was only there on a three day visitors visa is somehow indicative of his slovenly nature is once again completely overstated in this thread.
But back in those days, liberal protesters were often arrested as that was a tactical decision on their part to sacrifice their freedom for the cause. That was the chosen path in many cases rather than turning to violence. That was the course that Sanders chose at that time. along with many others.
Likewise your decision to point out the population of Vermont is disingenuous as well. Yes it has less than a million in population. But so does North Dakota and South Dakota and they too have the right to Senators just as does Vermont. I'm sure there are others in that low population equation as well that have that right.
And yes, he has been voted into office by only the people in his state and you ask does he represent the American people on that basis? Hardly, He is running to represent the American people on the basis of the large number of people who are voting for him across the country.
I do not support Sanders in this race. However I do believe in exposing propagandistic tripe when I see it and I see it here in your OP.
