To Spur Technological Growth

Offer up a contest with a monetary prize for the winner. These contests would be for innovations in technology, such as: automatically driven vehicles, and new methods of producing ethanol cheaply and efficiently. A la the X Prize for a reusable space vehicle. Doing so would allow for technical innovations without the outlay of massive government contracts. By opening up the contests to all Americans anybody would be able to enter, the best idea could win.
not just the idea submitted by the largest political donor.
