There are many ways in which our constitution has been modified informally since its ratification. In practice the executive branch has grown relatively much stronger, the houses have grown relatively weaker, Congress has ceded its authority to coin money to banking interests, and the federal government involves itself with the affairs of individual citizens, all of which are contrary to the written text of the founding compact.
