It is unattributed and also seen as a bumper sticker.

Don’t mean they're not after you

The recently published Yale Book of Quotations has the following:

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you.
Catch-22 (motion picture) (1970). Nigel Rees, Cassell's Humorous Quotations, records two earlier versions: "Because a person has monomania she need not be wrong about her facts" (Dorothy Sayeers, Murder Must Advertise ch. 16 [1933]); and "Has it ever struck you that when people get persecution mania, they usually have a good deal to feel persecuted about?" (C. P. Snow, The Affair ch. 11 [1960]).

The difference between common-sense and paranoia is that common-sense is thinking everyone is out to get you. That's normal -- they are. Paranoia is thinking that they're conspiring.~J. Kegler Rolling

"You would only be paranoid if it wasn't true."

I've heard that in response to various different complaints about the government, from officers in various different branches in the armed forces. I always have assumed that it was an inside joke throughout the service.
