A Rasberry Pi should run fine being on all the time. It's running low voltage and you could easily put a fan nearby to keep it cool. Are you planning on putting in it a case? If so, it may get hotter, but shouldn't overheat provided you don't keep it in a place that's already hot and you have air circulating.

From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?
