Please help me with auxiliaries


Haven't you ever seen or used sentences written like this? 


If  I do not sleep now, I could get crazy.


If you do not mind, I would like to go now.


I am sorry if I did something wrong.


Although the sentences are more correct with can, will and do respectively by strictly traditional grammar, we can see many sentence like those nowadays, can't we? Even 'would like to' is used extensively in daily conversations without knowing where it comes from. What do you experts think? Thank you so much as usual and have a good day.
