They do get executed every time. I have a similar issue, but my data
does not change very frequently, so instead of using a view, I create
lookup tables to hold the data. So once a day I do something like
drop lookup_table_1;
create table lookup_table_1 as SELECT ...;

In my case, rows are not deleted or updated, so I don't actually do a
"drop table..." I merely add new records to the existing table, but if
your data changes, the drop table technique can be faster than doing a
delete or update.
