Yes. He doesn't deserve to be on there since he put Japanese-Americans in concentration camps during WWII.

Lincoln was a racist too, but for both of these Presidents the good definitely outweighs the bad. We've had plenty of 3rd rate bottom of the barrel Presidents. FDR was definitely not one.

Only as part of a complete redesign of the coinage that removes all presidents and politicians.  Given the small size of the coin, I'd favor a design for the dime that had the Liberty Bell on the obverse and a ring of 13 stars on the reverse surrounding the denomination.

The good he did far outweighs the bad.

Thomas Jefferson had slaves living in shacks at Monticello, he still deserves to be on the nickel.

So a lack of knowledge means I'm not welcome here? I've always wondered why there's a lack of Republicans on this forum and now I'm beginning to see why.

No.

Though I disagree with some of his policies, I do not believe that the Commander-in-Chief of the military that saved the world should be removed from currency.

He opposed slavery.  The fact that he was in debt and that slaves counted legally as property didn't do much in his favor.  George Washington owned slaves as well.  I guess he deserves to be on the penny?

Yes. War criminals don't belong on US currency.

How about we go back and remove the weapons we gave you to hold back the Germans before we got into WWII?  If it weren't for FDR, we would be having this conversation in German and your home would be ruled by some variant of the BNP.

The only president on something that shouldn't be anywhere near our currency is Jackson. Other than that, it doesn't really matter to me...

I think the fact that he appears on our currency is a form of irony.

There are a number of good reasons for him to be on the dime, so no.

While I would prefer that our currency bear the visage of cultural figures rather than presidents, I see no need to single out Roosevelt...especially while Jackson is still floating around.

Lincoln was not racist in any meaningful sense - he was on the right side of the racial issues of his day.

Anyway, I think we should go back to this beauty:

I see I wasn't quite blunt enough.  FDR founded the movement most widely associated with this currency denomination.  He has a strong personal link to the dime.  For that reason alone, even if you can't stand FDR, he deserves to stay on.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Removing them was more humane then allowing them to continually get in conflict with Europeans.

By that standard, it would be more humane to remove the Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza than allowing then to continually get in conflict with Israelis.
