Current banking regulations against this already discriminate against expatriate americans and give them an undue burden, especially if they do not intend on returning. America is the only major country that taxes world income by citizenship and not residency.

Yes, as long as offshore income is from money initially earned in the U.S. and not from labor or work overseas and is reported by both individuals and corporations - and appropriate taxes withheld.

They can put it on the Moon for all I care. Set up US rules so "offshore" money flows into the
US economy. It's a global economy and we ought to track all investments - like the billions
in illegal drug, weapon and human trafficking trades. Tax that and use the vast sums to free the oppressed.

If the money was generated here in the States I feel like it should remain in the States. But, if the owner of the money has dual citizenship, owns land in said country of account location. I imagine thats OK.

Yes, banks outside America are still banks, and the money will be taxed by that countries standards. On top of that, America taxes all income globally, so the money accrued overseas is taxed, the money in the bank is still part of your total net worth. Holding money offshore should just increase the number of times your money is taxed.
