A paradox about Drift Velocity

The power expended in moving the electrons and delivered to the load (the 100W in your example above) are two different things. The output or load power delivered by the conductor is not the force on the charge carriers (electrons) x their drift velocity.
But its interesting that when you equate P=VI with I=nAve you do get a P=Fv type equation the full equation being P=N*Fv(see my post above).I know it seems odd.
